Programmatically accessing another user's profile... how?

Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to ask, but I've run into a 

bit of a quandary.

I'm trying to build a page where an Admin user can go in and change the
profile properties for any other user. I'm having a bear of a time figuring
out how to retrieve a profile in order to edit it. Does allow for
this within the Profile Provider framework, and if so, how can I use it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I used to call an user control's user control function as stated below from my user control in ASP.Net 1.1 wucCompany.wucEmployee.GetEmployeeSomething() After migrating to ASP.Net 2.0, I am unable to use any properties/functions(even the public ones) of the user control's User control's from another user control.  The way I have to do is create property\function in wucCompany which calls the wucEmployee's property\function and call the wucDepartment.GetEmployeeSomething().Since I need to do this change in too many places, I can...

access user's local machine's info
Hi, Is that possible we can implement something in ASP.NET to access user's local machine's info, such as MAC# or Hard Drive #? Thanks. Chia Nope. Or, more specifically, I hope not. This would be a major, huge security breach. The best you could do is to embed an ActiveX or .NET component in the page, convince the user to install it, and get the info that way. This would only be reasonable in an intranet situation. But you'd have to install it independently of the ASP.NET page before you could use it.

Access another user's mailbox
Is there a way to access another user's mailbox if they have a password set on it and you don't have proxy rights? There is a manager that wants to build a case against an employee who is supposedly sending harmful messages to other employees so doesn't want that employee to know. She has cleared this thru our legal department but I don't know a way to do it. I'm guessing I might be able to do a restore of the PO on another server and then access it but to monitor messages sent each day, that wouldn't be feasible. Any thoughts?? Tina Use reveal fro...

Accessing another user's archive
Hello, I am new to Groupwise so I don't know all the ins-n-outs yet, and I'm having a hard time finding an answer to this: I have a user that is no longer with out organization, and the user's account is disabled and mailbox is gone. However, I do have that person's archive folder saved on a dvd with all their documents and etc. My manager wants to be able to open up that archive to go through the archived messages. How would I import that archive folder, or at least make it readable? I know in Outlook archives are just a single file that you can open up, Groupwise ...

User Control's and State Management
Greetings all! I was tasked with the assignment of putting a form together that had an area that could load controls dynamically.  Just so everyone has the same idea of what this page was supposed to be, think of a form at the top of the page that contains elements that are common and the lower portion of the form has a sort of 'navigation bar' that would load a specific control into the section that accepts controls.  This sounds simple enough, but I found out how difficult it really is.  First, the top portion of the web form is pretty basic, some textboxes, a datagrid, e...

One user's email appearing in another's inbox !?!
Situtation one: UserA sends email to UserB. Email arrives at UserB inbox, but also in UserC inbox even though not addressed to him. Situation two: UserA proxies to UserB. Re-files an email from UserB-Inbox to a shared folder, owned by UserC. Once re-filed, email also appears in the inbox of User-D. In both situations, the properties on the suprious email appearing at (S1, UserC & S2, User D) have been checked, and they are definitely not on the recipient list. The usual db maintanence repair processes have been run, although a full rebuild of the mail...

One User's Mail Can't Be Printed by Another User
Greetings all-- There is one user here whose email can't be printed. When a second user tries to print, the message "An error occurred during this process" appears. Printing other email and from other applications is fine. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Where does the problem lie, in user A (the sender) or in user B (the recipient)? In user B's case, I removed GW, ran the GW Cleaning Agent, defragged, etc, reinstalled GW and still she can't print user A's email. (I can print user A's mail, but then I'm an Admin.) This is GW 5.5 ...

Proxy access to another user's archive
Is there any way to provide proxy access to another user's archive. OR - Can an account be created that only has read/write access, but no delete or modify? My research has shown that the answer to the first question is a NO, and that this is some inherant functionality of the GW software. But, I wanted to get some extra confirmation from anyone willing to reply. If anyone is aware of a way to provide proxy access to another user's archive, I'd appreciate a reply. Jason Powers No, and it is deliberate and by design. -- Michael J. Bell Novell Support Co...

Accessing Another Application's Application State
Does anyone know if it's possible for one application (App A) to access another application's (App B) Application State that resides on the same server? I don't know if it's possible (I suspect not, without some really ugly trickery), but I can say this: it's a really crappy design, and would easily run into a lot of issues.Tomas Restrepo [MVP] Well ouch! I know this isn't the best thing to try, but based on business rules I have to separate a security management and application maint. piece from the actual application. I need to unfortunately get/set some application va...
