I'm currently using Exchange 2007 and working on upgrading to Exchange 2013.  In the older 2007 version I remember reading somewhere that it would be better to create users in AD Users and Computers first and then go to the Exchange Management Console and create their mailbox.  

In Exchange 2013, is this process really needed anymore?  Or is it safe to just create new user accounts with mailboxes using the Exchange Admin Center?
