AD and Exchange don't seem to link up

I may be missing something simple, but I have just deployed my first exchange 2007 server, I have followed all the instructions from Microsoft and MSexchange.org, but something seems to be wrong.

In the past my active directory user properties had the users exchange details in 4 tabs as well included now there is nothing.

I have created the user in the exchange console, so does this mean now when I create a new user, I have to do it twice once in AD and then in exchange?

Also I can't seem to get my head around to to configure a transport hub, I have an external SMTP server for spam protection on my internal IP range, so all I need Exchage to do is send and receive to and from this IP, there seems to be very little around about that.

So in summay does anyone have a post installation (config) guide to Exchange 2007?

Lets break this apart......

A mailbox is only an attribute of a  user account so No when using EMC to create a new user while creating a mailbox or if you created a user and use EMC to create the mbx thats it only 1 account.

Exchange 2007 has split the management model you will no longer see Exchange tabs on users via Active directory Users and computers but only through EMC

1. Setup a send connector for * and have it forward to the smart host if you want outbound mail to pass through your  spam server

2. If you spam server is sending  to Exchange as anonymous then you need to setup a recieve connector with annoymous to recieve the messages from the spam filter
