i would like to set domain user accounts to become disabled if they are not accessed by the user for 30 days.

i am running group policies, but can find no setting which allows me to do this.

Any help greatly appreciated

    There is no group policy that will do this.

    On a user account, you can set an account to expire after a set date...but this isn't exactly what you want either.

    You'll have to write a script in order to accomplish what you want.

    Here's a bit more information:
