I have just installed Exchange 2010.I can create mailboxes and connect and all is well. BUT
1. None of my AD users have mailboxes and their PROPERTIES do not have Exchange tasks available.
2. Adding a new AD user I do not get prompted to create a mailbox.

What am I missing?

You just moved from 2003 didn't you?

You don't get the snap-in in AD users and computer any more. You get the Exchange Management Console, and the Exchange Management Shell. That's it.

To create mailboxes at the same time as user accounts you would need to use one of those, or you could create them in AD Users and Computers, then enable them in the console or shell.

For example, to enable an existing user we might do this in the shell:
Enable-Mailbox "SomeUser" -Database "Server\StorageGroup\Database"

Open in new window

It's the same thing when you use the Console, except it builds the command for you, then executes it on your behalf.

It's quite a big change, but if you manage to embrace the management shell at all you can do a hell of a lot with a lot less effort than you ever could for 2003.

If you do that and find you have questions, just link up your question to the PowerShell area and we'll all help out :)
