New user no mailbox

Environment: 2 Exchange servers, both use Win 2k OS, mailbox server is Exch 2k3, smtp server is Exch 2k.  This is a temporary configuration as we are transitioning to Exch 2k7 next week (Apr 18).

Problem:  When I create a user in ADUC, I tell the wizard to create a mailbox.  The mailbox does not show up in Exch.  However, if I right-click the user, select "exchange tasks", move mailbox, and move it to another store, it suddenly appears.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Mailboxes are not created until required. If you send a message to the mailbox or log in to it then the mailbox will be created.
