I have already discovered that I cannot use the Exchange Management Console and believe I need to go through the PowerShell. I tried the command below but got the following error. Do you I need to set up a user account in active directory first? We are running Windows 2008 domain level. Am I on the write track with the command below? Maybe I
Just made a typo? All advice welcome



PS C:\> New-Mailbox -Name:'Budget' -OrganizationalUnit:'Domain.com/Exchange Res
ources' -Database:'Mailbox Database' -UserPrincipalName:'budget@domain.com' -Sh
ared
The term 'New-Mailbox' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, scr
