Create New user with Mailbox in Exchange 2007


Create New user with Mailbox in Exchange 2007




This lesson walks through the process of how to create new mailbox in Exchange 2007 as well as  how to create new user in Exchange 2007 at the same time.  From the Exchange Management Console, click on the Recipient Configuration on the left panel, and click on “New Mailbox” on the Action panel to launch the new mailbox wizard.  This time, select the default “New user” option and click “Next.”  Once again, the New Mailbox dialog will first prompt you to select a mailbox type to create, which ranges from User Mailbox, Room Mailbox, Equipment Mailbox and Linked Mailbox.  Select “User Mailbox” this time round and click on “Next” to advance the wizard.
Here, you will be prompted to provide the same information that is usually prompted for by Active Directory, but within the new mailbox wizard. This is because in addition to the mailbox being created, a new user object will be created in the Active Directory of Exchange 2007 as well. In this case, assign the first name and last name, logon name and password.  In addition, the checkbox “User must change password at next logon” can also be selected for better security before clicking on “Next.”
The wizard now shows the mailbox settings page in which the alias can be changed. In addition, you will need to click on “Browse” to select the appropriate storage group in which you create new mailbox.  As with the previous lesson, leave the Managed folder mailbox policy and Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy deselected at this time as the subjects have not been covered.  Click on “Next” to see the configuration summary and “New” to create the mailbox and user account if no modification is required.
Finally, click on “Finish” to exit the wizard.  You should be able to see that created new user with a Mailbox   within “Active Directory Users and Computers” from Administrative Tools now.
