Creating Recipients


Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-21

After Exchange has extended Active Directory Users and Computers, you can mail-enable or mailbox-enable an object, and thereby turn the Active Directory object into a recipient. However, not all objects can be mail-enabled or mailbox-enabled. For example, you can create a mailbox for a user object or a mail-enabled group object, but you cannot do either for a computer object. Therefore, the Active Directory objects that are of most interest to you as an Exchange administrator are:

  • Users

  • InetOrgPerson objects

  • Contacts

  • Groups

  • Query-based distribution groups
