Is there are VB or  any other script that shows user primary email address at login.

We have 1500 users with Windows 2003 and exchange 2003 AD environmnent.

Exchage is hosting 2 domains. So half of the users have 1 account and rest has other domain primary email account. I want to show users their primary email address at login.
Is there a way to display this information.

Thanks

Yep, it would have to be a message box; VbScript doesn't have much in the way of visual components.

You might also want to add error control so it can deal with users that don't have any e-mail addresses. Otherwise this is a very quick bit that'll return the primary:


Set objADSystemInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & objADSystemInfo.UserName)

arrAddresses = objUser.GetEx("proxyAddresses")
For Each strAddress in arrAddresses
      If InStr(strAddress, "SMTP:") Then
            strAddress = Replace(strAddress, "SMTP:", "")
            Exit For
      End If
Next

MsgBox strAddress
