Don't know if you got Exchange running in de domain. I know you can see the
last access time / logon time to the mailboxes. If it's been a while
(>month??), there's a big chance the user is gone. Not 100% proof but maybe
it will help you out.

Hi all, 

I am running an NT domain here with approx 500 users altogether in this
site. We are planning to move over to AD soon as part of our preparation I
would like to scan my NT4 PDC for dead user accounts so I can remove them
all prior to migration so my new Ad will only contain active user accounts
instead of loads of unused or disabled accounts from people that may not be
here anymore. So my question is: Is there a resource kit Util or script or
anything out there that will scan my master SAM file or the user accounts on
the PDC and tell me which accounts have not been used for sometime and

Any feedback appreciated. Many thanks in advance
