Mail Enabling multiple accounts in Exchange 2003

I work at a Help Desk and mail enable about 100 AD accounts a day. Occasionally I get a request to mail enable a block of up to 200 accounts. The individual requests are manageble, for now, but these block requests are a pain. On top of the amount of accounts they are not always in the same container. Is there a script or something that would make it faster to amil enable these accounts? Is there something the requestor needs to do to the accounts to facilitate an easier mail enable (i.e SMTP addresses etc.)?

Both links would work just fine and I thank you for your help. The sad part is management is not interested in stream lining this process right now due to other more high profile projects that are being evaluated at the moment.

Sorry it took so long to respond. I spent a great deal of time, wasted in turns out, developing a decision paper using parts of the links you submitted. Hence the slow response. Again thanks Nitin for your help.

Hi,
Glad to be of help.
But I really appreciate the pain that you have taken ion creating the white paper. Can you share it with me. gupnit at yahoo dot com, I can publish it on my website with acknowledgement to you if you want, let everyone (community) benefit from it.
Also do not worry this is the case everytime and in every company, we all struggle in convicing management, if we are working in a company where IT is seen as a support function only
Cheers
