Hello I need add a new mailbox for user A, but I don't know how to do it, I can create a mailbox for user B and give rights for the user A, but I require a CAL for the user.

Thanks

You still need to create another mailbox and give user A permission to access that mailbox. I'm not quite sure what you want to accomplish.

Add-MailboxPermission “User A” -AccessRights FullAccess -user “User B”

here you are giving full mailbox access to userB for userA's mailbox.

and if you are with outlook 2010 no need to add those mailbox from client end.. it will be populated with the help of automapping concept..

I want to do this answer from Sembee2.  I  prefer not create a new user "B" to a latter give permissions to user "A". Can I create a mailbox without user and assing to user "A"?

As far as Exchange is concerned, all users only have one email address - the primary. All others are aliases for inbound email ONLY. You cannot just enter another address in the from field and expect it to work.

Therefore you have a number of choices.
1. Setup additional mailboxes.
2. Use a third party tool ChooseFrom.

Additional mailboxes do not require additional CALs. The user would require permissions to Send As the additional mailbox.

you cannot create a mailbox without an AD user. instead you can create a shared mailbox where AD account will be in disabled state.

What Sambee meant was create an additional AD&Mailbox ..... now give Original user "SendAs and FullMailboxAccess" rights to dummy mailbox and add in Outlook (once done hide dummy mailbox in GAL) .....

its a Global Address List (GAL) where you can see all the users email addresses, groups, contacts.
