Hi - I recently added a new user on an SBS 2008 server - However, when setting her up for the POP connector , her AD name/mailbox does not appear in the dropdown list. I Checked all mailbox settings and noticed she didnt have a .local address under emails , which i added. But otherwise the account works fine on all fronts accept for this issue.

Any tips?

Thanks

Check AD Users and Computers and see what OU the user is in?  Should be under MyBusiness\SBSUsers

thats your half problem start if you added in AD console but not SBs console

AD console only Ad user without adding exchange mailbox

you need to then goto exchange console, mailbox to add the mailbox or else it wont be created .....


After that, you need to assign the user back to the SBS console

after this, you should get lsited in SBS console, then it should be in POP connector
