  • Creating multiple mailboxes

    We are currently migrating from one a Exchange 5.5 to a 2003 one which is a member server of a different domain in the same forest. I'm going to use exmerge to move the mailboxes around, so I was wondering if there is a quicker method in creating new mailboxes in the new server before i exmerge all the pst. (We're talking of about 500 mailboxes, which may require a bit of elbow grease if done one by one).
    Thanks for your help

    If all the mailboxes are in the same OU, highlight them all, right click, go to exchange tasks, and then select create mailbox.

      No, users aren't in the same OU but that's ok. I can easily manage about a dozen OU as opposed to 500 users. Thanks for that

          You also have 2 other options:

          1) Use the FIND feature, search for users, highlight all the results, and right-click.

          2) When performing other maintanance actions you can (and should) be aware of ADMOD .NET. Look for it in Google, it can do wonders.

            Thanks Daniel

            I'll give admod (If it's the command line tool you are talking about) a go as well.
            For the ones that are interested you can get it from here www.joeware.net/win/free/tools/admod.htm

              Although Joe Richards has some very cool tools, I was referring to ADMODIFY .NET. Sorry about the misunderstanding.
