    I am now ready to start adding my new users for my company so that people can start using OWA.

    Is it possible to just create mailboxes (e-mail addresses) without creating active directory accounts that would allow them to logon to workstations within the builidng.

    Our use will all be for OWA.

    Setup is a Windows 2000 SP4 Exchange 2k3 SP2 and unit is considered a domain controller.

    Thanks,
    RC

    No. Unlike Exchange 5.5, in Exchange 2000 and above a mailbox is an attribute of a user object and cannot be created "stand alone". You can create users with mailboxes and then deny the users the ability to log on to any computers. That way they can have email only.

        He actually said deny logon to any computers -- a subtle difference

          The deny computers method works really well. However you do need to allow them to login to the Exchange server, otherwise they cannot use OWA!
