AD Group Membership

What group membership (except Domain Admin) or permissions can I give a user in our IT department to create AD accounts with the option of creating Exchange mailboxes?

He can now create new AD user accounts but doesnt have the option to create the mailbox or to even see in AD user properties the Exchange tabs on the user accounts. (Exchange General, Exchange Features, Email Addresses, etc...)

The user will need at least Exchange management tools installation and a minimum of Exchange View Only administrator rights delegated to them so that hey can work with Exchange elements in AD.

He needs the exchange system manager installed on his machine.

If he has ESM and can't see the tabs, you have not made him an Exchange administrator. You can delegate the properties using the built in selections or give permissions fine grained by using the security tab on the Admin group in question in ESM.
as confirmation, you want user
(1) create AD account without the ability to add mailbox to this account.
(2) no access to Exchange taps to AD accounts

if that what you want, you can do as following steps:
(1) Install Adminpak from CD windows 2000/2003 on laptop XP
(2) go to Control Panel > Administrative tools >  AD users and computers
(3) Create new users and you will not be asked about mailbox option.
(4) Double click on old user account you will not see exchage taps

I hope this will help
