After a shutdown the exchange administrator doesn't let me create a new mailbox, in the NT Event Viewer it says I don't have permission, what kind of permission do I need?
I'm running Exchange 5.5 on Win2000Server and have administrator access.

When you installed exchange it would have asked you to create a new NT Account or to use the Administrator account to asign exchange rights to.

This is the username that you need to us. & as Vinnyd79 said have you changed the password or is the account disabled/Locked Out?

pforeman: It ain't User Manager for Domains on Windows 2000--it's Active Directory Users and Computers, assuming his entire domain is Active Directory (seems likely, since he has Exchange installed on a 2K server).
