Incomplete exchange tasks

By williamoshea ·
I am running exchange 2000 on a windows 2000 domain. I realised that when I right click on a username in AD and select exchange task, i realise that the only task available is "Enable Instant Messaging", (Create mailbox.... Establish e-mail address are both missing) for these users.

Any idea why this is happenning for some users and not others.

Make sure that you have the Exchange System Management tools installed on the system you are using to administer Exchange.

If the tools are installed on the system, this is a rights issue and you will need the following permissions to administer Exchange:

Create Mailbox
To successfully apply the Create Mailbox task to a user, the user account must have the Exchange View-only Administrator role in Exchange System Manager, and must have Write permissions to the following attributes on the user object:
autoReplyMessage
adminDisplayName
displayName
dLMemDefault
homeMDB (Exchange Mailbox Store)
homeMTA
legacyExchangeDN
mail
mailNickname
mAPIRecipient
mDBUseDefaults
msExchADCGlobalNames

The attributes that you must use to apply the Delete Mailbox task to a user in Exchange 2000 Server have changed in a hotfix that was implemented after Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 3 (SP3) was released.

To apply the Move Mailbox task, the user account must have the Exchange Administrator role in Exchange System Manager and must have Write access to the Mapisvc.inf file on the computer where you use the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in to perform the Move Mailbox task. Additionally, the user account must have Write permissions to the following attributes on the user object:
homeMDB (Write Exchange Mailbox Store)
homeMTA
msExchHomeServerName (Write Exchange Home Server)
targetAddress
Note You may have to restart your computer for the permissions to take effect on the Mapisvc.inf file. You set these permissions in AD users and Computers in the security of a user. In AD users and Computers, click the Advanced tab, and then you can view and edit the object properties and the values.


Enable or Disable Instant Messaging
To either enable or disable a user's Instant Messaging service, the user account must have the Exchange View-only Administrator role in Exchange System Manager, and Write permissions to the following attributes on the user object:
msExchIMAddress
msExchIMMetaPhysicalURL
msExchIMPhysicalURL
msExchIMVirtualServer
msExchIMACL

I dont know why I am experiencing this difficulty with only a small percentage of my users. In the past, just deleting and recreating the affected user accounts usually resolved the problem, but i do not wish to do this anymore as it does not explain why the user accounts were affected in the first place.
