Exchange Server 2003 mailbox

By mtorres7 ·
I have created a new user at Active Directory Users and Computers, and filled al the required info for a new user (name, alias, password, create a mailbox, etc.) The problem is that in the creation process, the new mailbox for the user is not created. I have deleted the user, and followed all the steps again (3 times), but the mailbox is not created.

Please help!

I have created the user, with no error prompt from the system. I notice that the mailbox is not created, when I try to configure Outlook to receive the user's mail from Exchange.

When a new mailbox is created, the mailbox is not created until it has at least 1 mail message in it.
I suggest sending a test message to mailbox to initialise the mailbox.

If you are creating this user account on the exchange server with the Users and Computers admin tool, then you should have been prompted to add a mailbox as part of the user creation wizard. What happens when you open another user's account? Do you see the Exchange tabs?

Yes, the wizard prompts for the mailbox creation. The exchange tabs for the new user are displayed; but the email is not displayed on the tabs. I have added the email manually.

if you mean the email address, then that is applied after the mailbox is created and filled in. Make sure your Recipient Policy applies to new mailboxes correctly, it sometimes takes a minute or two.
