My environment:  MS server 2003 with MS Exchange 2003.

Quick Question:

I'd like to import some users with csvde.  After exporting I found lots of useful fields (such as group membership, phone numbers, titles, etc.)

If I import my list of users will it automatically generate their Exchange email accounts (can be used as soon as the passwords are set)?

Thanks!

Importing the CSV will not create the mailboxes, but you can mail-enable existing user objects through the command line. Have a look here: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Command-Line-based-Exchange-Management-ExchMbx.html

Mail-enabling the user object with ExchMbx should leave existing properties intact (like group membership and phone numbers), but there is a good chance that the e-mail address you put in the CSV will be stamped again by the Recipient Policy.

If that's not a problem, then I'd say, go ahead with a small set of users. Be sure to test using an automated script when doing things like this, so you don't make a mistake when importing the bulk of it.

Thanks,  I had about 17 users to create so I may do them manually as importing...from start to finish...for this amount would probably take just as long.  It would certainly be a good learning experience, however, so importing is tempting.

Yes, absolutely. Very re-usable.

Good luck.
