As you can see, the userJBlack was created on the Exch2KTrn Server in the 2000trainers.com domain. The users mailbox was placed in the First Storage Group/Mailbox Store, which is the default store that was created when we installed Exchange.
That’s all there is to it! I have now created a new Windows 2000 mailbox-enabled user. But as I mentioned before, I am not done yet, not by a long shot. We still have three other recipient objects to look at, and then we are going to take a look at the Exchange task wizard. The next one up on our list is the mail-enabled recipient. The mail-enabled recipient is fairly similar to the mailbox-enabled recipient, with the exception of a mailbox. Whereas a mailbox-enabled recipient has an Exchange 2000 mailbox, a mail-enabled recipient has an external email address associated with it. This might be the case where your company actually has an employee from a business partner that reports directly to your location. Although they log on to your network and spend their days at your place of business, they still have to keep in touch with their co-workers back at the main office. Creating a mail-enabled user allows them to do this, while at the same time allowing their address to appear in the Global Address List.
The process here is a little bit different, but for the sake of brevity, I am going to pick up on the third screen shot, where we would select to create the Exchange alias for our new user. As this is going to be a mail-enabled user, I don’t want to create a mailbox, so I deselect the option to create an Exchange mailbox. However, for illustration purposes, I will point out that the new user we are creating has a alias RDangerfield.
I click Next, and Finish, and my new user has been created ,although I am not quite done yet. I still need to run the Exchange Task Wizard in order to associate this user with their external email account. First thing that I am going to need to do is right-click on the user object, and select the Exchange Tasks Wizard.
That should bring up the following screen;
From here, we can make our selection to Establish email addresses. When we click Next, we will see a screen prompting us for the email address for our mail-enabled user. We then select Modify, and select the type of address that the user will be using, as shown in the following graphic;
