Additionally, I would highly suggest that you post this in our MSDN forum.
People there have better knowledge on codes and scripts related issues.
They may help you to change the codes to achieve what you want and they may
share some useful information with you.

Thank you for your cooperation and I hope this will be resolved soon.

That was a useless post. Just telling someone to post in another forum
isn't going to help their situation. I already pointed them to the right




thanks for thoses informations, after reading the article i think i have no
solution (with my script knowledge) to modify winmail with a vbs script

so if someone have a idee until the 11/12 even if i will do it with my 2
hands :)

thanks nicolas

You should only need to modify / create an xml file for the account and put
it in the message store directory. The user would still have to enter a
password however, because that is stored as an encrypted value that is
encoded on a per Windows user basis.
