The Create Mailbox Before User Logon sample application reads from a text file to create a new user in Microsoft® Active Directory® and create a mailboxe in the Exchange store for a user prior to that user logging on using Microsoft Outlook® or Outlook Web Access. This allows e-mail messages to be sent to the new user and meeting requests or appointments to be added to the new user's calendar before the user first logs on.

Create Mailbox Before User Logon Sample Application Components

The Create Mailbox Before User Logon sample application consists of a Microsoft Visual Basic® Scripting Edition (VBScript) file. Active Directory® Service Interfaces (ADSI) is used to create one or more new user objects in Active Directory; CDO for Exchange Management (CDOEXM) is used to create the mailboxes for these new users and enable them for immediate logon; and the WebDAV protocol is used to force the mailbox folders to be created in the Exchange store. The Create Mailbox Before User Logon sample application must be used on either a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or a computer that has the Exchange Management components installed.
