Create mailboxes thru Active directory?

With Exchange 2000 and 2003 in AD I could create a new user and mailbox at 1 time. Now I cannot. I'm wondering if there is some admin pack I'm missing or if this is just how Exchange 2007 has changed?

Did you load the exchange system management tools on the DC you're using to create the accounts?

Midnight: No I did not load the ESM tools on the DC. Which install is this?

Tiger: I get the idea from your link, thanks for the info. However when I right click on Mailbox I do not get the option to Enable Mailbox.

Green: Any way to select which groups the new user will be in or do I still need to open ADUC?
If there's no option to Enable the Mailbox then it must already be enabled.

There is no need to install the Exchange management tools on the DC - all management can be performed through the Exchange Server.

You will need to add users as member of groups through ADUC I think.

I need to install the Exchange Management tools on at least 1 other computer. Its only on the Exchange server now. how do I do that?
Run Exchange 2007 setup on the second machine and when prompted what options you want to install setup with (it will give you all the roles, CCR clustering etc.), choose the Management Tools option only. Then you can just proceed through setup as usual.
