I installed Exchange 2010 on Server 2008 and I would like to it that when setting up a new user account with AD that the option would come up to setup an exchange mailbox as well.  This is available with SBS so I am wondering how to make it work in this setting as well.

Cannot really be done. That's a discontinued feature. You can, however, create a user account directly from Exchange Management Console.

Install ADUC on your computer and install Exchange 2003 Tools.

If your OS is windows 7 you have to install RSAT (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=7d2f6ad7-656b-4313-a005-4e344e43997d) and install Exchange System Manager Tool for Windows Vista (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=3403d74e-8942-421b-8738-b3664559e46f)

The above works only if you have Windows 7 32 bit.

Those tools needs to be installed on a laptop or a workstation running Windows Xp, Vista or Windows 7.

To create a user mailbox using the Exchange Management Console follow this steps:

The ability to create mailboxes from ADUC is not available any more due to some design changes in the management utilities.  (for a quick overview why this cannot be done look at http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-2010-faq-manage-mailboxes-ad-users-computers).

Creating users and mailboxes is now a 2-step process.  However, this can become 1 step if you create some scripts to do the extra tasks for you.  

step 1 - create user in ADUC (http://www.trainsignaltraining.com/windows-server-2008-active-directory-users)
step 2 - mail enable the user account.(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998319.aspx)
