Managing Recipient Settings

Create a Mailbox-Enabled User

You can simultaneously create a Windows 2000 user object and make it mailbox-enabled.

To create a mailbox-enabled user:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Right-click the folder that will contain the new mailbox-enabled user, point to New, and then click User.
  3. In the New Object - User dialog box, in First name, Initials, Last name, and User logon name, type the user's information. Then click Next.
  4. In the Password box, type a password for the new user. Confirm the new password by re-typing the password in Confirm Password. Select the password options that apply, and then click Next.
  5. Verify that the Create an Exchange mailbox check box is selected. Verify that the information in Alias and in the Server and Mailbox Store drop-down lists is correct, and then click Next.
  6. In the final view of the New Object - User dialog box, verify that the information displayed is correct, and then click Finish. If the information is not correct, click Back to correct the information.
