Hi

I see MS has an Loadgen tool to simulate a large environments sending of messages. I've read this article:

http://www.msexchange.org/articles/Microsoft-Exchange-Load-Generator.html

But wasn't sure on how the actual mail-enabled AD accounts are created? Is that something that is created seperately?

Secondly, does this tool actually send messages to the test mailboxes? Or does it only simulate the load on the Exchange server of sending these messages?

This is how the mail-enable AD account is created which will not have mailbox but will have external email address. The mail-enabled ad account can login to the network and use resoucres.
Also the Load Generator will create the account when you specify while installing.
