Creating many mailboxes

By chengkuan ·
My question is:

Is there a way I can create many mailboxes in Exchange 5.5 in one go and linking to the many users' NT accounts ?

Can this process be automated ?

Thanks

Creating many mailboxes

by Shanghai Sam In reply to Creating many mailboxes

What you want to do is create a CSV (Comma Separated Value file) in Excel. With this file you can create multiple account and tie these accounts to a specific NT ID. this is assuming that the NT ID is already created. See the following doc:

XADM:How to Create Mailboxes by Means of a .csv File [Q244595]
----
If on the other hand you also need to create the NT ID there are a couple of options:

1. Use the ADDUSER tool found in the nT4 Resource Kit. After thisis completed create the mail accounts using the CSV as outlined above.

2. Use the Administrative Mailbox Agent found in the Exchange 5.5 resource kit. This tool when propelry configured will automatically create the NT acount and the Mail account (requires some clean-up to make any special NT group modifications and home directory modifications)
-----
There may be 3rd party tools available to help, for these check :
