Hi,

We have the following scenario. On a weekly basis I have to change the 'forward and deliver' option on an exchange mailbox to a different person. I do this by RDPing to the Exchange server and setting it manually.

Is there a way I can put a page on our intranet that will display a combo box of various users from an OU (I can do this bit)  and allow people to set the 'Forward and Deliver' option on the mailbox to themselves or someone else (I can't do this bit).

I'm know very basic ASP and have been struggling with the handful of stuff I've found on Google!

Thanks

David

Hey David,

I assume you've worked in permission to change the attribute you need?

What you need is:

1. A connection to a user, e.g. Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://CN=User Name,OU= ...)

2. The attributes to change:

altRecipient

If you want to deliver and keep a copy you also need to set:

DeliverAndRedirect

To True. Default is False (as in leaving the box unticked).

3. Distinguished Name of the person you want to receive it.

That gives us:

strOriginalUser = "CN=Bob Jones,OU=Somewhere,DC=domain,DC=local"
strNewMailRecipient = "CN=Tracy Gibbs,OU=Somewhere,DC=domain,DC=local"

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strOriginalUser
objUser.Put "altRecipient", strNewMailRecipient
objUser.SetInfo

You'll need those values returned from your searches. If your user isn't authenticating when logging on you'll need to have them choose both the user to forward, and the user to forward to.
