I have proper delegation setup for a user in Active Directory to create and modify user accounts; however, I want this user to also create mailboxes for users.  I can create a user, but cannot create/modify exchange tasks.  How/where do I add delegation for this user to be able to add/modify Exchange Tasks?

To enable Help desk staff or other nonadministrators to create mailboxes on existing accounts, you need to use the Windows 2000 Delegation of Control Wizard to give the Help desk group the necessary Active Directory (AD) permissions. The Help desk group will also need at least Exchange View Only Administrator permissions for the administrative groups that host the stores in which the Help desk staff will create mailboxes. By controlling which administrative groups the Help desk group has permissions for, you can control on which accounts the Help desk staff can create mailboxes.

So I create a group, for example, Help Desk.

Give this Help Group the permissions of Exchange View Only from another group that already has these permissions?

I'm not sure that I'm on the same page.  I know what you're saying will work, but I'm not sure exactly that I'm fully understanding how to do it?

Create a group called Help Desk in active directory users and computers. Now delegate the necessary permissions on the Active Directory by running the Active directory delegation wizard from ADUC.

For exchange mailbox creation rights or permissions.

1.Open the Exchange System Manager-expand the administrative group where the mailbox store for the user is located.

2.Right click the Administrative group and start the Exchange delegation wizard. The wizard will walkthrough the necessary steps of creating  exchange view only administrators.
