within the admin role group Exchange management, you have the option to setup a new Role group. However, it only allows you to assign users to the group who have mailboxes. I want to assign admin accounts (in a sub domain) that do not have mailboxes attached the the accounts - How can i do this?

The gola is to setup a Role Group, add admin accounts w/ no mailboxes and assign to a particular OU.

I am going to watch this thread. I do not think you can but I hope you can, I could use that ability as well. MS Exchange does not use security groups but only DLs. Exchange does not see users that do not have mailboxes, or often not even if they have mailboxes but are hidden.

So good luck.
