Hello EE,

We recently upgraded our exchange environment to 2010.  Kinda stupid question (or maybe not). I'm trying to create mailboxes through the Exchange Management Console installed on my workstation (windows 7 x64). The create new mailbox option isn't available? do you have to do this directly on the server?  Hoping for a workaround but couldn't find one on Google.  I'd assume you could use the management shell but prefer the GUI since we have multiple techs that needs access with varying skill levels.


Thx
-Brad

Its in Active Directory Users and Computers

The exchange upgrade should have created an OU called
Microsoft Exchange Security Groups

In here you will find the new groups associated with 2010.

The Organization Management group is like the Admin group...
