How do I get the emails of all the members of a given group in ActiveDirectory - Need help

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


  I have a need to send out emails to all the people who are in a given group say "HR Department". I need to be able to get all the emails through a for loop and then as it retrieves I should send emails to them. Can some one please help me with the code

this is what I came up with but not sure how to go about writing a for loop to get all the emails in the given group.

public static string SendEmails(string loginName)
        string Department = "HR Department"
        string userName = ExtractUserName(loginName);
        DirectorySearcher search = new DirectorySearcher();
        search.Filter = String.Format("(SAMAccountName={0})", userName);
        //search.Filter = String.Format("(SAMAccountName={FAY ImprovmentForm})", userName);
        //LdapSearcher.Filter = string.Format("(&(objectClass=user)(department={0}))", Department); 
        //search.Filter = string.Format("(&(objectClass=group)(SAMAccountName=" + Department + "))", userName);

Enumerate Group members

I am using the following code to enumerate group members. It works great unless i hit a group with over 1000 users. Is there any way to enumerate these large groups?

dim groupName as string = "Managers"
dim sFilter as string = String.Format("(&(objectCategory=group)(sAMAccountName= {0}))", groupName)
Dim de As New DirectoryEntry("LDAP://"& Servername &"/DC=fssa,DC=Bla,DC=blabla, DC=blablabla",sDomainUser,sDomainPass)

dim ds as DirectorySearcher

ds = new DirectorySearcher(de, sFilter)
ds.pagesize = 100
dim sr as SearchResult = ds.Findone()

Dim myResultPropColl As ResultPropertyCollection

myResultPropColl = sr.Properties
response.write( sr.path)

Dim myCollection As Object
For Each myCollection In myResultPropColl("member;range={0}{500}")
Next myCollection


Set up alert to send to site Members group?

I would like to set up an alert on a discussion list, to send an alert to all site members when a new discussion thread is started.  In the new alert form, in the Users field look up directory, it doesn't show site collection groups, and when I try typing it in directly into the Users field and checking, it doesn't find a match.  Is there a way to do this without making the SP group an AD group?  I would think since each individual user in a SharePoint group can have email sent to them that the group could. Thanks for any suggestions.  I don't want to have to enter in all the users individually.
There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

I've added a scalar property to an entity and now ASP.NET Dynamic Data scaffolding throws this error:

The number of members in the conceptual type 'TrainingModel.Users' does not match with the number of members on the object side type 'TrainingModel.Users'. Make sure the number of members are the same.

This happens at the following line in global.asax:

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?


SPD workflow, emails sent for one user, not for the other


Good day,

I have a SPD workflow (WSS/2007) that take a date field from a document list and when that date occurs it sends an email.  If the date is in the past, it will send the email out right away.  It is working fine for one user, not for another.  Both users have the same permissions.  The workflow goes as follows:

ACTION: Set Variable: vTermdate to DocumentsNotificationDate
       then log Documents:Email Date to the workflow history list

CONDITION: if Variable: vTermdate is not Empty
ACTION: Log term not empty to the workflow history list

CONDITION: if Variable: vTermdate is Empty
ACTION: Set Variable: vTermdate to N/A

ACTION: Add 0 minutes to Documents:Email Date (out to
