Using SBS when people don't want a mailbox

By karljeffery ·
I just installed Microsoft Small Business Server which includes Exchange, and some people in the office want Exchange mailboxes and some don't. Does anyone know how to configure this? The problem is - if someone with an Exchange mailbox sends an e-mail to someone else in the office, the e-mail will land in their exchange mailbox and they won't find it. Most people are happy downloading e-mail directly from the ISP into their Outlook and storing it as a pst file (because that way they can eg set up autoforwards to Google, and the SMTP is much more reliable when its run by the ISP than when its run internally).

you use the management console

to create user accounts. When creating one, you just don't create a mailbox.

With SBS, you really don't manually configure anything. You use the wizards and those are found in the management console. Just like joining computers to the domain. first they must have an account, you create that with the add computer wizard in the managements console. Then the computer is joined using the web browser and http://<server>/connectcomputer wizard. If you don't use this method, the computer account is not in the proper Small Business Server OU for Group Policy.
