Exchange 2000 Mailboxes and AD Logins
Posted on 2004-03-23
As far as I can tell every mailbox created in a Windows 2000 AD needs a user account created to accomplish this.
Is there a way I can create mailboxes that do not create users on my network that allow logins? For example in Exchange 5.5 you can have 50 Users but hundreds of mailboxes and assign rights to those mailboxes. How can this be done in AD? I can't believe that every mailbox creates a user to login to my netowrk. That is a huge security risk, plus not every mailbox is for a user (i.e. support@ help@, etc.)
I am sorry to sound dumb here, but I cannot find anything on this...anywhere.
