You can install the Exchange Management Role on their computer (or a computer that they have access to) and make them and Exchange Admin. Just install or mount the ISO for Exchange 2007 on their system, and run through the setup like you normally would, but instead of installing the whole server, you would just install the management tools. Once you o that, you will need to install the same service pack and rollup that are on your existing exchange sever(s) (they should ALL match, exactly, in an ideal world.)

Hope this helps.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The only other way would be a script to do the work for you.
If you were on Exchange 2010 or higher then it would be easy - you could run a remote PowerShell command to do the job for you.

Thanks for the clarification, Simon! I wondered if that was possible on 2007, but it seemed like it would be a lot of trouble.

All you need to do is give the User Exchange Recipient Management permission. Once you have done this all you need to do is install the Exchange Admin Tools on the users workstation. From there they will be able to perform mailbox creations without having to login to the server.
