Add Exchange email account for user in Windows 2003 Server

I am running Windows 2003 Small Business Server. I created a user account and if my memory is acurate I decided not to give a specific user (we will call them user1) an email address at the time. Well now I need to give this user an email account. So when I go to Server Management and right click on the user and go to properties none of the exchange tabs are present. So I did some reading and everyone says just "right click on the user and click Exchange Tasks"... Well I dont get the "Exchange Tasks" option when I right click on the user. I have clicked around in every tab there is, searched through the Exchange Manager but I cannot find anything that will assign this user an exchange mailbox.

Please Help!

start > run > dsa.msc
view > advanced features

then you should see exchange tasks/tabs for users

failing that... do this:
start > run >
"C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\users and computers.msc"
(adjust for wherever your bin folder is)

I figured it out right after I posted this.

The method I used was while in "Manage Users" within "Server Management" instead of right clicking on the user and selecting "Exchange Tasks" (which wasn't an option) I right clicked off to the right in a blank area and I had the option of "Change User Permissions" which started a wizard that allowed me to select a previously created user and add a mailbox feature. Once I did that all my Exchange tabs showed up in the users properties.

As far as your solution:
That would of worked for me as well so I will grant you the points for it.

Thanks!
