Creating users in Exchange 2007

Hi

At the moment, we use ADUC to create users. The general method is to copy an account that already exists.

Does anyone know if it's possible to create a mailbox enabled account with Exchange 2007 powershell by copying another one? Or do I need to enter all the attributes in the Powershell commands?

Thanks!

to create a mailbox you need to specify
-database
-password
-UserPrincipalName
-Name
-OrganizationalUnit

You can take it all from a CSV or use something this this
$user     = Read-Host "Enter Username.."
$password = Read-Host "Enter Password.." -AsSecureString
$OU       = Read-Host "Enter OU........"
 
IF ($OU.length -eq 0) 
{
	$OU = "e2k7.local/MyUsers"
}
 
$database = "e12powershell\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database"
$ExternalEmailAddress = $user + "@e2k7.local"
$txtfile = $user + ".txt"
new-mailbox -database $database -password $password -UserPrincipalName $ExternalEmailAddress -Name $user -OrganizationalUnit $OU
 
get-mailbox $user 
get-mailbox $user | fl | out-file $txtfile | notepad $txtfile
