VB Script Error 0x80005000

Posted on 2009-05-05

I found a VB Script over at WindowsITPro (InstantDoc #46819) for sending password expiration emails. The script seems to work (users get the proper email notifications) but at the end of the script I get an error:
"reportpasswordchange.vbs(56, 3) (null): 0x80005000"

Also, when the email is actually sent, there is no "sender name" in the email. Where am I going wrong?
