On Get-Mailbox against an identity, and the output properties of "WhenMailboxCreated" and "WhenCreated", what's the difference?
Is WhenCreated truly the creation of the Active Directory user object, while the WhenMailboxCreated is when the mailbox was enabled for the existing (WhenCreated) AD user object?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So to answer you question you are connect.
