You won't see any Exchange related attributes via ADU&C with Exchange 2007. In Exchange 2007 you manage Exchange from the Exchange Management tools not AD.

I presume you are talking about the Exchange tabs which appear on user properties in Active Directory Users and Computers.

In Exchange 2007 and 2010, these no longer exist.

All management of Exchange has been separated and must now be done via the Exchange Management Console. You must not use older tools (such as Exchange 2003 System Manager) to manage mailboxes on Exchange 2007/2010 servers, as this is most definitely not supported.

Since Exchange 2007 is a solely 64-bit application, Microsoft have released a version of the management tools for 32-bit systems. You can get your copy at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6be38633-7248-4532-929b-76e9c677e802&displaylang=en.

Hi sedillodl,

Tigermatt and mass are more then correct, but you still have a chance to choose and continue using Active Directory Users and Computers with Exchange 2007 (and soon 2010 too)
