Adding users to Exchange Server

By jppadilla ·
First of all, forgive my english :). I am a new user in the NT environment, so I need to add an email address for a new user on an Exchange server on NT 4.0, Does exist any step by step manual to do this? or Can somebody give me a tip to do this? because I dont have any documentation. Than you for all.

1. you can automate the process by syncronizing everytime you add a new user you create the mailbox at the same time (well almost the same time).

*** in User Mgr for Domains
*** File menu item -- Exchange
*** select create mail box w/ new user** after you create the new user, then new user mail box properties will pop-up. Fill in the information on the general tab --- you really don't need to fill in the rest. because your mail server fills in most of the default information such as email address e.g. LJones@mycompany.com.
If your curious on what the rest of the tabs refer to; use Exchange Admin -- go to mailbox's and click on properties of an existing user to see what information they have -- then just assimilate this informationfor the new user.

It is really not that difficult especially if you already have users with mailbox's already.

Hope you have fun.
After all that is why we do what we do.

I hope this isn't too simplistic for you, but I'm also not sure how familiar you are w/ Exchange, so forgive some of the basics. I'm assuming that you're adding the person from within Exchange itself. Before you add your user, you need to determine what naming convention your company is using. Whether you're using the first letter of the person's first name and Last name (basic Exchange default), or you're using some other convention (users initials, users first name dot last name, there are a lot of variants). After you have this determined you can start.
1) Within Exchange double-click on the Container you wish to put the account in, and then click on the Recipients icon so that you can create a new Mailbox.
2) Go into File and select New Mailbox. Fill in the users first and last name (at a minimum), and any other information your company requires. You might want to look at another users mailbox first to see what else to add).
3) At the bottom select the botton Primary Windows NT Account and then choose "Existing Windows NT Account" (assuming that you've already set up the user on your network).
4) After you've selected the account, and clicked OK to go back, choose the Email Addresses tab, and then go down to theSMTP line, click on it, and select edit off to the right side if you need to change the email address of the individual to take into account your company's namingconvention.
5) After you've completed the account setup, I like to go into each Mailing list that I need to add them to immediately, so that I don't forget to add them to the lists.
This will take care of your "basic user setup" needs, but if you haven't administered Exchange before, I'd recommend going to http://support.microsoft.com/support/ServiceWare/Exchange/exs50/default.asp, which is the basic Exchange admin page on Microsoft's site. It's helped me learn as I go as well. Good luck.
