I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server with Exchange 2010, and want to be able to add mailboxes as I am adding a user account on AD.

I have seen this before (and on separate servers, this is just on one!) - how can it be done?

Thanks in advance :)

Create user through exchange management shell (commandlets) or  Exchange Management console.
This will create a mailbox too.

Or on the server which you are currently creating users, install exchange administration tools.
This will enable mailbox creation option from that server.

Yes, but I mean directly in the Active Directory 'Add User' prompt.

shabarinath said it, install the exchange administration tools on the Dc you're working on or on the workstation you're managing the AD from. This will incorperate the exchange addins for the Active Directory Users and Computers, so you will be able to perform exchange tasks from there. When creating a user, an additional page in the wizard appears allowing you to create a mailbox for the user.

With Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010, you can't actually do what you are asking.

The Exchange tools have been split from the Active Directory management tools as most large networks have separate teams managing the AD and mail infrastructures. As previously noted, you will need to create your users entirely through the Exchange tools or add a mailbox for a user account later if they were created through AD.
