Create User Mailbox: For an Existing User Account in Exchange 2007


Create User Mailbox: For an Existing User Account in Exchange 2007




There are a couple of different ways to create mailbox in Exchange 2007: you can create user mailbox for an existing user, or create a new mailbox and user at the same time.  In this lesson from Exchange 2007, we will create user mailbox for an existing user, which must first be created in “Active Directory Users and Computers” from Administrative Tools.  From within 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.
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” for this lesson and click on “Next.”  The wizard in Exchange 2007 will then present the option of creating a mailbox for a new user, or for existing users.  Select the “Existing users” and click on the “Add” button to locate the user from the list.  Select the user and click “Next” where the wizard will display a bunch of mailbox settings that can be configured for the selected user.  The alias can be changed, for example, as well as the option to specify the storage group and mailbox database in which to create the mailbox.
Finally, there is also the option to adopt a Managed folder mailbox policy or Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy at this time. Leaving these two options unchecked for now, click on “Next” to see a configuration summary of the configuration options that were chosen so far. Assuming everything is in order, clicking on “New” will initiate the creation of the mailbox for the selected user account. Click on “Finish” to exit the wizard and you are done. You successfully created user mailbox in Exchange 2007
