When i create an account in AD in windows server 2008 it doesn't also create an email address in exchange.

I know in server 2003 it did this automatically. I was wondering if there was something that i could change that could make this happen.

Thanks

You have to manually create the mailbox in Exchange and assign it to the existing AD user.

Or...use Exchange Management Console to create the new AD user at the same time as creating the mailbox. See this link to guide you...

Yeah, i was having to create them manually. So if I create them through exchange it will create it in AD automatically?

This has regressed a little from server 2003.

Thank you

I agree with guswebb, the easiest way to do it is to create the account in Exchange and it will automatically create the account in AD. if not, then you will have to create it in AD, then go to Exchange and choose an existing user and select the newly created account.
