You either have to create the user using ADUC on the Exchange server, or install the Exchange System Tools on to your domain controller. The former is the best option as you shouldn't install more than you need on to your domain controller.

Mailboxes aren't created until they are required. That is normal behaviour. Send the account an email message and it will be created.

Your second question has no relation to the original, so should be asked separately.
