E-mail notifications that Active Directory Passwords Will Expire Soon

Last Modified: 2008-05-31
I am looking for a free program that will send out e-mail notifications to users from Active Directory that their password will expire soon.  Can anyone recommend a free (or even low cost) solution?

Thanks!  Those are the same two options I have found so far.  I'm waiting for a quote from Sysoptools, but I have a feeling that will probably be over budget (as just about any spending is!).  I've examined and tested the script, but was hoping for something a little more easy to configure - for exceptions, etc. - since I am no vbs expert.  But this is very good.  I'm gonna wait a bit and see if any other suggestions get posted....

im a little confused that you would want to spend money on this when they get the warning when they log on anyway!
James, some people never explicitly logon. This is a common requirement with pda/blackberry users who have an account purely for email purposes.

Today I made changes to our domains password expiry notification script (so its fresh in my mind). It is similar enough to Michael's script for me to suggest that tim90g could use Michael's.
