Hi Everyone,

I'm confused here, in my current situation, I have created single mailbox from Exc Mgmt. console and grant full access permission as well as send as permission but how come the mailbox object is still as the "User mailbox" where the old object which was exist before I join the company is displayed as "Shared Mailbox" ?

any explanation what's the different any how can I create shared mailbox or no need to worry about it in Exchange Server 2007 SP1 ?

Thanks.

Was there an upgrade or migration at some point. We had this and i set them all back to user via the exchange 2007 cmd line. This happens when doing an upgrade from say 2003 and migrating or moving the mailboxes to 2007 exchange.

Yes there was, you are right, the story is like this:

I'm having problem with this Shared mailbox which makes the transaction log growth uncontrollably, therefore i had to export the items (from my Outlook) and then create new user mailbox and then importing it again using my Outlook, so far I configured the Send as and the full access permission as well as the alias to match the previous shared mailbox and I wonder what is the difference between Shared mailbox (old) and the new user mailbox (user of course), I haven't disabled the user account from ADUC.
