hello all - im looking for a simple powershell script that can automate the new user and mailbox creation process.  Ideally - the script will ask for things like first name, last name, display name, mailbox database, email address, alias, you know, all the standard stuff.  

I don't need to read in input from csv, can anyone help?
thanks!

before all that ,
$password = Read-Host "Enter password" -AsSecureString;


New-ADUser -SamAccountName  -Name "name" -UserPrincipalName "UPN" -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "Password" -Force) -Enabled $true -PasswordNeverExpires $true -Path 'CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=net.


this a way to create a AD user alone ..


New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName user@domain.com -PrimarySmtpAddress user@domain.com -Alias "name" -Database "Database Name" -Name "FUllname" -OrganizationalUnit "YourDomain.com/OU" -Password $password -FirstName "Name" -LastName "name" -DisplayName "Display name" -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $True
