In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, recipients are comprised of mailbox users, mail-enabled users, mail contacts, distribution groups, security groups, dynamic distribution groups, and mail-enabled public folders.

In previous versions of Exchange Server, you performed recipient management tasks in Active Directory Users and Computers. In Exchange 2007, you can perform these management tasks in both the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell. However, although you can perform all recipient management tasks in the Exchange Management Shell, only some are performed in the Exchange Management Console.

The following topics list the management tasks that you can perform for a specific recipient type.

The following is a list of management tasks that apply to multiple recipient types, and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. Unless otherwise noted, these tasks can be performed by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.
