if the account is expired on 12/19/2014, (today's date is 12/24/2012),  In AD Users and Computer snap-in, the user account's property, Account tab, doesn't have the account disabled checked so indicating not disabled and shows Account expires on 12/19/2014.  This data is correct but is mis-leading.  Can user still log in using that account?  It's not disabled but it's expired.  What does that mean?

Thank you.

The user cannot log in (not supposed to be able to log in), but the account is not disabled and the administrator can manage the account.  If you have Exchange, email would continue to come in.
