How to create mailboxes with Exchange 2007

I have an Windows Server 2003 as Active Directory (and DNS, DHCP, WINS) running and working.
Another machine runs Exchange 2007 and appears to run as supposed. However, there is no tab in the properties of an user (in the AD) where I can create a mailbox or manage the email address for that user.

In the AD it seemes like the Exchange installation did not change anything, except 2 new groups on the right side.

How do I create new mailboxes?

The Exchange server is in the intranet and will use connectors to the ISPs mail server. I prepared the forest and the AD before the installation.

I did not know that this is now done on the Exchange machine.

Do I have to finish all the steps in the finalize pane?
Im sorry,

I just contradicted myself.

Apparently, in Exchange 2007 there is no longer an AD Snap-In. As noted in the link to the article I just posted, LOL. Man it must be getting late....

"With Exchange Server 2007, mail-enabled objects will no longer be managed via the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, they will instead be manipulated via the Exchange Management console or shell as Ill show you later on in this article."

Hence you will need to do it via the Exchange 2007 Management console
