When adding new accounts in Active Directory (AD), the option to create an email address is enabled (i.e., checked). However, when I go into the account properties, there is nothing showing up as far as an address. It appears that a mailbox exists that can be logged into via Outlook Web Access (OWA), but no email address (SMTP or X.400) is defined.

A little Back ground. been having issues with this domain. The main dc crashed got it moved to backup domain.

If you are using Exchange 2007/2010 then you won't get the mail/email tabs and have to go into the Exchange Management Console to see them...

You need the Exchange Management Tools installed on that machine to see the tabs OR RDP onto the Exchange server and use ADUC on there
