  • Sending an e-mail to users whose password is about to expire

    Originally published September 13, 2005 (Note November 13, 2007: My second most popular blog post ever. Also due for some cleanup and re-write.) This has come up a number of times, and I actually thought I'd blogged about it in the past -- but I guess not. If you have users that only use POP and...

  • Using BackOfficeStorage/ExIFS

    Originally published August 25, 2005 In Exchange Server 2003, Microsoft fixed the disaster that was the infamous “M:” drive, and hid it again. But the functionality was not removed -- lots of stuff depends on it. ExIFS provides many capabilities, one of them is that the Exchange stores can be treated...

  • Provisioning Hosted Exchange Users from a Web Page

    Originally published July 22, 2005 I wrote last year, in this article , about using a script to provision a hosted Exchange user, and that works well. Well, I should say, it works well for me . The other folks in the office who have to provision Exchange users, and whose mind doesn't work quite the...

  • Creating an Offline Address List in VBScript

    Originally published April 30, 2005 Given the techniques we learned in this article about working with binary data in VBScript, plus a simple technique for creating GUIDs in VBScript, we are now prepared to use those capabilities in creating Exchange Server objects. A GUID is a Globally Unique Identifier...

  • Checking ProxyAddresses for Duplicates

    Originally published December 30, 2004 Today I needed to know if all of my proxyaddresses (that is, the entries on the “E-Mail Addresses” tab in Active Directory Users and Computers) were unique. ADU&C prevents you from entering a duplicate manually, but it's possible for a script or for the...

  • A Small Script (Send Email via CDO)

    Originally published November 30, 2004 Several months ago I wrote a small script about sending email via the Outlook object model. You can see that article here . The Outlook object model has a couple of problems - it requires user approval, and you don't have access to all the fields you may want...

  • Setting Mailbox Limits by OU and by Group

    Originally published November 18, 2004 It's a common request to set mailbox limits for all the users in a particular OU or for all the users in a group. That functionality is not built-in to Exchange. The following script shows you how to do both and hopefully, is fairly self-explanatory. Option...

  • Dumping Exchange Information

    Originally published November 18, 2004 (Note November 13, 2007: were I to rewrite this today, I would get most of this information from Active Directory. Some very small piece of it must come from other sources.) Whenever I come into a new client, I've got LOADS of questions about the Exchange environment...

  • Adding a Hosted Exchange User With VBScript - Patch 1

    Originally published October 5, 2004 OK, I knew there would be bugs. :-) The first bug someone found is that the original script doesn't verify uniqueness of the User Principal Name. As I discuss elsewhere, Active Directory doesn't verify that either (which could be considered a bug in A/D, in...

  • Adding a Hosted Exchange User With VBScript

    Originally published September 30, 2004 (Note November 13, 2007: this will work with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003, but not with Exchange 2007.) Getting back to scripting, I've finally scrubbed and sanitized and cleaned up one of my core provisioning scripts. While finding small example scripts...
