I upgraded to Exchange 2007 and, for the last year or so, did not change the way I created new domain users (from my AD consoles).  I noticed that, unless I create new users from the Exchange Management Console (which syncs with AD just fine), the users show up as Legacy Mailboxes, as opposed to User Mailboxes.  Could someone kindly explain the difference in functionality between these two mailboxes for me?
Thanks!

Legacy Mailboxes are those that exist on Exchange 2000 and 2003 in a coexsist environment with Exchange 2007.   Mailboxes on Exchange 2007 will appears as User Mailboxes.

2003 user 2003 OWA and Exchange 2007 use 2007 OWA etc.
