Question password expiration and user account lockout / disable automation


I'm a newbie ah-hoc sysadmin who was cornered into doing some of this work and am a bit overwhelmed.

I have a 90 day expiration set for passwords. How can I do the following?

1) send emails to users at the password expiration warning time?

2) send an email when their password expires

3) lock / disable an account if the password expires

4) send an email to the user and myself when an account is disabled due to pw expiration

thanks for the help.
