Hi Folks,

We have two exchange 2007 Server in the same domain .One in the forest and the second one in remote site. I want to customize Exchange Admin roles. We want only one account with permission to manage only the exchange server located in my remote site but no manage the Msx server located in the root. I added the role Exchange Administrator role and select just one MSX server but when I tested I noticed that this account with this role can created new mailboxes located in the second exchange server also delete mailboxes located in diferent MSX server..
If there any way to customize it. We want just the administrator with permission to manage recipient mailboxes in only on  one msx server.

You can't go down to that level with Exchange 2007.
Exchange 2007 is trying to do away with server specific admin functionality, and use the AD domain instead. The removal of Admin groups is a clear sign of that. Therefore you would grant someone the recipient admin role, then restrict what they can do through AD. That would mean grouping the users in to OUs and then setting the permissions on the OU.
That would almost certainly mean that the procedure for account creation would need to be changed to the split method, where the account is created in the correct OU, and then mail enabled, rather than doing it in one procedure on Exchange itself.
