exchange 2003, still unable to create/access any new mail boxes yet AD says they exist in the store?
Posted on 2006-06-16
I have seen this question posted before, but the solution did not help, basically when i create any additional users and their associated mailboxs, AD acknowedges that the users have been created in the mailbox store under 'Exchange general' but the email address tab shows no SMTP address or x 400 address, also system manager has no record of that mailbox ever being created! and as such the outlook client does not resolve the name at all, i have rebooted the exchange 2003 server a few times and tried various test users in different OU's etc but no results, i then try and move one of these test users to a member exchange 2000 server and get the following error xml error
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="unicode" ?>

I have installed exchange 2003 service pack 2 and we are using corporate xda's to access this server so i cannot uninstall sp2 and install service pack 1 as suggested in the prior fix, any help would be really appreciated.
