I am wondering if there is a way accomplish creating an OWA mailbox without creating a new AD user account.  I have a contractor whom I would like to create a mailbox for in our system but I don't want to create a new user account unless I actually have to by rule.  Any info would be much appreciated.

Mailbox = user account.

Therefore if you want that use to have a mailbox they will need an AD account.
