Hi all, one of my first posts, so be nice! :)
Working on a piece of AS Computing Coursework.
I'm currently developing an application in Access 2003.
The system will allow staff at our college to book IT labs, in a single central location and email the staff to confirm their booking.
I have managed to get this working for me logged in on a student account, as our internal emails have the same address as our network login.
Dim EmailAddress as String EmailAddress = (Environ("Username")) & "@ourschooldomain.com"
I have got code that talks directly to our smtp server, and sends the email...
However staff's logins are not their email addresses, their emails are
firstname.lastname@example.org and their logins are three digit initials
However, if I put in a member of staff's login into the TO field of Outlook Web Access, click check names, it autocorrects it into their full email.
This must mean their email address & UserID are both stored within Active Directory.
Can I, using VB query the Active Directory and return the email that's associated with the current login?
I emailed the site techie, who said it was not in his job description to help, but said that by simply querying the Active directory using a LDAP connection, I should be able to find it with no problem.
I would appreciate any help you can provide, especially if you write a small explanation of what the codes/examples does.
I will not use any code within my project without mentioning the source.
Thank you in advance
