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
