I would like to use Powershell to setup User Accounts and Mailboxes in simple script, but I think I am missing modules for Powershell to know what to do to add-newmailbox etc.

What do I need to do to have this possible either on the DC or on a Windows 8 client I am using to administer Servers?

You can also simply install the Management Shell\Console from the Exchange Setup files

You can also use Remote PowerShell to manage Exchange 2010..

To install the management tools, all you have to do is run the Exchange setup on the DC (or other non-Exchange server) as if you were going to make it an actual exchange server, but when you're asked which components to install, choose ONLY the management tools, and that will install the EMC and the Powershell console..  

The biggest problem you're likely to have is that you'll need to install some exchange prerequisites that dont seem to make sense, but nothing so wacky that it should worry you to have to install on a DC..

You can also do the remote powershell thing, but personally, I'm still kind of old-school about it too, and want to have the tools local..
