Windows 2003 / Exchange 2003 environment.  Need to figure out if there is a way to allow our Help Desk the ability to create account and mailbox only.  We do not want them to have the ability to read everyone's emails, delete accounts.  Is this possible?  Not sure what permissions are required.

Use the Delegate Control wizard to assign at least the 'Create user' common task to the Helpdesk group.

The Helpdesk group should also be a View Only Exchange Administrator. They need to be able to list the AGs and servers in the organization to assign the mailbox server. Use the Exchange Administrator to delegate View Only Administrator rights at the Organization or the Administrative Group, depending on the scope.

If your helpdesk uses AD Users & Computers to create accounts, then the Exchange management tools should be installed on the computer they run it on. These tools are not compatible with Outlook and should ideally not be installed on the same computer (I believe you even have to un-install Outlook to install the Exchange management tools and Outlook will nag about it afterwards).
