We are running a WIndows SBS 2003 since more than four years now. Since this year we expierence more and more problems after the latest Exchange Service Pack 2. Yesterday I tried to add a user since February. I receive no error message by adding a new user. The wizard shows me, that he will create an Exchange account as well, but it does't.

Is that a known problem here?

The serivce "Help and Support" can't be started, because it doesn't exist anymore.

Thanks for anything you can tell me.

Regards,

Andreas

Hello Pete,

Thanks for the quick answer. When I send an email to the user I receive a undeliverable notification.
What is the exact name of the exchange system attandant service. I don't find it in my services.

Kind regards,

Andreas

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I found the service and restarted it, but nothing changes.

The user does not have any Exchange tabs in his properties, like the others have. Is there may be another service missing that is normally involved in the Job to create a new user?

... and if I try to create an Exchange account through the "Exchange Task Wizard" after selecting the user in  the Active Directory -> Server -> MyBusiness -> Users -> SBSUsers, the dropdown list Mailbox Store is empty.

May be that helps.
