When i create a new user account on either of my 2 domain controllers it creates event ID 624 and 626. However if i create the account on my Mail server the account creates just fine but it is not creating those 2 event ID's in the logs. any ideas why?

I am not sure if there is anyway you can log new account creation.
You can crank up diagnostic logging in Exchange 2003 to monitor all logons

Admin Groups
Domain Name
Servers
SERVERNAME
> right click properties
diagnostic logging tab
expand msexchangeIS

Are you creating accounts in your mail server using ADUC ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Guess i could create the account on the DC and then go to the mail server and create a mailbox to it? Just adds a step.

My auditing for AD is correct as is obvious because the event ID's are needed when i create them on the domain controllers. My problem is not answered in these areticles as to why they do not create in my Mail server logs

ok figured it out....kinda. My Mail server was authentcating to DC2 so when i created account, nothing was showing up in logs of DC2 (i read an artice that said because account is really being created in AD not on Mail server it wont show up in mail logs). When i forced the mail server to authenticate onto DC1 the files apear in DC1 security logs.
