Create a mailbox option not available in SBS 2008 when creating a user

I am new to SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007. I figured that when i created a user in 2008 it would give me an option to create a mailbox for the user but it does not. I am nout quite sure how to create the mailbox. I have created several users already but was not able to create the mailbox. So i would like to know how i can create the mailbox for existiing user and how from now on I can get the option to create the mailbox at the same time as creating the user. Thanks for your help

You need to create the users using the SBS Console.
If you want to use Exchange then it needs to be done using the Exchange Management Console, there is no longer any tools in Active Directory Users and Computers to do this.
