Bulk user management tools

All,

I wander if you can help with this?
Currently I am using scripts I've created to add users to active directory. These scripts automatically create all needed network folders and email account and sets all the correct security permissions and exchange settings etc.

This script is pretty good and working really well but now i have been asked to create one for deleting users as well as all those folders.
This will probably extend to moving users as well and could be used for bulk adding and deleting.


Does anyone know if any tools or software exists that already does this or is this something I can only do as a script form?

Thanks for your help

James
