Exchange 2010 Task Establish E-mail Address

I have a newly installed 2010 Exchange server. I just upgraded from 2000 domain to 2003 and exchange 5.5; so I'm learning the inn’s and outs. I have read everything I can find but I'm still lost to how to Establish E-mail Address for an AD user account; that’s SMTP mail addresses only no mail box creation in exchange 2010. I have 400 or so accounts and 300 of them are user accounts with miscellanies e-mail address. In Exchange 5.5 with EMS tools 5.5 I could just right click and Establish E-mail Address under exchange tasks. I don’t seem to be able to perform this action in AD with Exchange 2010 or maybe I'm missing a tool to complete this action?
Please help...

Yes it can be done via GUI as well. But this is a simpler method. What you need to do is to
  • Go Exchange Management Console
  • Go to recipients Configuration
  • Go to Mail Contact
  • From there you can either Create new contacts and Mail enable some.

if the contacts are already there, then use the following command to enable email address for them
 
Enable-MailContact -Identity "Conatctname" -ExternalEmailAddress "conatct@externaldomain.com"

Is there an diffrent way this can be down in a GUI, as the people I work with who need to input the accounts are not wanting to do it this way? Other groups make the accounts and this use to be easy for them to do.
