SBS 2011 - A user with 2 mailboxes

Amiga-2000 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I am looking at taking on a company who run SBS 2008 on nasty hardware in need of replacement. Currently they have 1 exchange handled domain, 1 external domain which clients POP down to a PST (which is stored across network - Nice)

I'm looking at upgrading to 2011 (fresh not migration as only 10 staff). I have read this from the MVP Sembee http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-CA/exchangesvrgeneral/thread/bb3cd22e-9915-4a42-bcc4-1330be63acf4
 which sound very interesting. I will certainly be looking to add both abc.com & 123.com as accepted domains. Sembee advises 5 users can have multiple mailboxes. What is the correct way to set these additional mailboxes up in EMC. I understand the initial setup of the 10 staff using SBS add user wizard, that gives me abc.com. To create the extra 10 mailboxes in EMC it would appear that folllowing the EMC new mailbox wizard i would be creating a new user account. Is this the correct way to create the mailbox? If so my plan is to create the extra 10 mailboxes for 123.com and assign the corresponding SBS created user the 'Full Mailbox permission'. Is this the correct procedure to give each SBS wizard created user two mailboxes.

Lastly I want to confirm each extra mailbox does do count as an extra user cal because it look/sounds like it's an additnal user in AD
