  • How can i be notified when new mailboxes get created?

    Hi everyone,
    I have a situation. We are in the process of going through an acquisition. Everyone in our current company, needs to also have a mailbox created in our parent company, and have their email forwarded from the parent to us. Is there a way that i can be notified any time a new mailbox is created in Exchange 2003? I have tried looking at Diagnostics Logging, but there is nothing that i can see for Mailbox creation.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I would love to have this as automated of a process as possible.

    Thanks

    There is nothing that I am aware of.
    Remember that mailboxes are only created when they are used. Otherwise accounts are mail enabled and ready for use. The only thing that you could do is some kind of script that runs at regular intervals, but it would need a comparison list. I wouldn't even know where to start on that.

    This would seem to be something that does not have a technical solution but a procedural problem. If other people can create mailboxes in your server then you either need to have a process where the forwarding is setup, or those other people must be stopped from creating mailboxes.

    Simon.

      the easiest way to be notified of mailbox creation is to be the only person allowed to make mailboxes, then you will know fer sure when one is created.
