  i have created a vbs script to create a user in AD with a primary SMTP address.  Now i would like to add several SMTP addresses instead of just the one.  i am having trouble getting ubound to work with an array of addresses.  can someone please point me in the right direction?

set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=TEST,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=NET")
Set objUser = objOU.Create("User", "cn=" & last & "\, " & strUser) 
	if (err.Number<>0) Then
		MsgBox("An error has occurred. Object Could Already Exist.  Error:" & Err.Number)
    End If
objUser.Put "givenName", strUser
objUser.Put "sn", last
objUser.Put "displayName", last & ", " & strUser
objUser.Put "description", des
objUser.Put "physicalDeliveryOfficeName", off
objUser.Put "telephoneNumber", tele
objUser.Put "mail", strUser & "." & last & domainEmail
objUser.Put "sAMAccountName", strUser & "." & last
objUser.Put "streetAddress", st
objUser.Put "postOfficeBox", pb
objUser.Put "l", ct
objUser.Put "st", sOrp
objUser.Put "postalCode", zOrp
objUser.Put "countryCode", coCode
objUser.Put "co", countcode
objUser.Put "c", cAbr
ObjUser.Put "userPrincipalName", strUser & "." & last & domainEmail
ObjUser.Put "scriptPath", scr
ObjUser.Put "title", ti
ObjUser.Put "department", dep

ObjUser.Put "mydomain-MailboxSize","100"
ObjUser.Put "mydomain-DataCenter","UNITED STATES"
ObjUser.Put "mydomain-EmailAddresses", "SMTP:" & strUser & "." & last & domainEmail

Have you considered using ADS_PROPERTY_APPEND?



ObjUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_APPEND, "myDomain-EmailAddresses", Array("smtp:newaddress1@domain.com")

I assume "mydomain-EmailAddresses" is the correct field (that is, this is not Exchange and therefore proxyAddresses), and that the field is really an array?

You'd potentially loop through each user doing that (SetInfo each time), so I advise that you put it after user creation is finalised.

Set objUser = GetObject (“LDAP://path of the user“)

Set filesys = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
set filetxt = filesys.openTextfile(“c:\Names.txt”,1)
do until filetxt.AtEndofStream
 name = filetxt.readline
 name = trim(name)
 objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_APPEND, “proxyAddresses”, Array(“smtp:” & name)
