SBS 2011 VPN Connectivity

I notice that when users are not in SBS Console, only in AD, even though they have "Allow Access" set for Network Access Permission on their user profile, they still cannot connect using SBS vpn. It seems they must be added to the console in order for vpn access to take effect. Is that normal? if so, when adding them to SBS console, a mailbox fis auto created for them even though they dont need it.  How to provide vpn access without adding them to SBS console?

Although we could probably figure this out the correct answer in SBS land is "use the console and wizards for everything" if you dont want them to have a mailbox, then delete it afterwards.

Now that we have that out the way, do they get access if you "copy" a working user in ADUC rather than creating the user from scratch? this should result in the user having the same permissions as the working user.
