Exchange 2010 vs Exchange 2003 making new mailboxes and managing from other site

Hi,
In exchange 2003 I would install admin tools from exchange 2003 and install only the AD portion so that my other admin at other site could make accounts, delete them, and manage them.  
How/where can I have the same tool which would give me the exchange AD from where my other site admin could make mailboxes and manage them.  Any other suggestion?
Help plz

You need the Exchange 2010 DVD to install the admin tools.

address is : https://domainname/ecp

ECP doesn't allow you to create the mailboxes. Ideally you will need Exchange management tools from the SP2 installation media (the DVD is usually out of date). However you will need a 64 bit workstation.

Personally I don't bother with installing the tools and will just RDP to the server. In larger sites it has been more efficient to setup a management server with terminal services that all admins can connect to. That gets round the problem of having dual accounts (admin account and a regular user account). A single user who is mail enabled and an admin is now not considered best practises.
