SBS 2003 Exchange will not Create Email Addresses when creating a new user

I have a client with SBS 2003 running exchange.  They recently got a new employee and asked me to setup an account for her.   When I went to setup her outlook on her desktop it kept telling me that it could not find her name.  When I added the new user in Active Directory it asked if I wanted to setup a mailbox.  I Clicked yes.  When I go into active directory and click on the email addresses tab, there is nothing there.  Usually when I created a user, all this would be filled out.  I tried manually entering the smtp and the X400, but this does not work.  

Any ideal what is going on?

Thanks

manual entry of the smtp address will not work. RUS has not stamped this new user.

Okay, on further exploration I noticed that the server had not been bounced in 3 months.  I install all the windows updates and restarted it.  Added new account and everything works.
