How to Create a New Mailbox Store


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-04

To create a new mailbox store on an Exchange server, perform the following procedure.

  1. In Exchange System Manager, right-click the storage group where the new store will reside, point to New, and then click Mailbox Store.

  2. When prompted, type a name for the mailbox store.

    Exchange automatically selects a default public store (associated with the Public Folders tree) and offline address book (which users will download for offline use) for your new mailbox store.

    You can modify these options now or later by right-clicking the mailbox store and clicking Properties.

    The following figure shows the properties of a mailbox store.
