Manage Users with Mailboxes on Previous Versions of Exchange
You can use Exchange Server Administrator or Windows 2000 Active Directory Users and Computers to manage users with mailboxes on Exchange 4.x or 5.x servers. Exchange 2000 Setup adds Exchange-related property tabs to allow administrators to manage the same mailbox attributes (for example, e-mail addresses, mailbox size limitations, and so on), that can be managed using Exchange Server Administrator. The advantage of managing them from Active Directory Users and Computers is that you can perform user management from one application.
You can also manage users with mailboxes on Exchange 4.x
or 5.x servers from Windows 2000 servers that do not have
Exchange 2000 installed.
Note You can manage Exchange 5.5 recipients from Exchange 2000 Server only if ADC is configured to replicate the recipients between Active Directory and the Exchange 5.5 directory.
Note Even though e-mail recipients are administered from Active Directory, you must still manage the Exchange 5.5 environment from Exchange Server Administrator. This includes the management of queues, connectors, address book views, monitors, and so on.
To manage users with mailboxes on Exchange 4.x or 5.x servers:
Note The Exchange Advanced tab only displays in the Advanced Features view. In Active Directory Users and Computers, on the View menu, click Advanced Features.
