How do I create Small Business Server 2008 users who will only have access to the SBS 2008 SharePoint 3.0 site?

These users should not be set up with email accounts. That is, they do not need to be email enabled.

Create the user normally. The you can use Exchange Management to delete the mail box. Then right click on the user and you can change their permissions for remote web.

No SBS expert, but why not just set them up in AD as domain users, not create a mailbox for them, and drop them in SharePoint groups?

Obviously that doesn't guarentee they won't have access to other resources on your network.

I found my own solution. By going to ADUC instead of using the SBS users GUI, I was able to add a user without a mailbox and give them permissionto to the proper default Sharepoint security group.
