Hi All,
Thank you for clicking on my questions. I have a new Exchange 2003 SP2 server I just installed on a new site with 2 Windows 2003 R2 SP2 DCs. The server is installed on a Windows 2003 R2 Std server. All the users and OUs were previously created, but no mailboxes yet. Here are my questions:
1. Is there a way I can automate Mailbox creation for all users?
2. Is there a script I can use to add the email address to all accounts including the company name, address and phone number to the info tab? I know SBS can do that using a templates. I wonder if Windows 2003 R2 has that too?
3. In what stage do I choose which email format do I want to use for all accounts? I would like to use firstname.lastname@companyname

Thank you so much for your help.
