I have an existing root domain running exchange 2007. I have had to add a new child domain to the tree after exchange was already in place. The current exchange server will be used for the entire org, what i need to know is how to get the new child domain listed in the management console of the exchange server in the root domain so i can create users and mailboxes all in one step.

In order to do this you will need to make sure that you ran /preparedomain in the Child Domain, then back on your Exchange 2007 server management console click on Recipient Configuration and cilck on Modify Recipient Scope from the far right hand pane. This will allow you to browse your AD structure including child domains and when you create a new mailbox / user you should be able to browse to add them to your child domain.
