Dear all,

I need a simple script to run on Windows Server 2003 that sends an email alert to the Administrators when an account is locked or the password of a user has expired.

We have multiple domain controllers in the same domain and users authenticate with them. Is there a way so that Administrators be informed on Windows Server 2003? Also we do not want to install third party software.

Regards,
