Situation: migrating from SBS 2003 to SRV 2K8 STD with Exchange 2010
1 single Forest with 1 domain (domain.local)

Every mailbox is moved to the new Exchange 2010 server

Exchange 2010 has also Domain Services role (+ GC)

problem : when creating a new user mailbox for existing users only a few users are shown in the list (users whithout a malboix are shown)

Whenever you are creating a new mailbox is will not show you objects that are already mailbox-enabled because they cannot have more than one mailbox
This reduces the results making it easier to find the correct object
