Use the User Type page to select the type of user account to associate with the mailbox. By default, New User is selected, but you can also mailbox-enable an existing user.

New User
  • Click this button to create a new user account for the mailbox. This allows you to simultaneously provision both the user account and the Exchange mailbox for a user.

  • If you select this option, you will need to provide the required user account information on the Mailbox Information page of this wizard.

Existing User
  • Click this button to mailbox-enable an existing user account. When you select this option, the Browse button is enabled.

  • Click Browse to open the Select User dialog box. The dialog box will display a list of user accounts in the forest that do not have associated mailboxes.

  • If you are creating a user mailbox, the list displays only enabled user accounts. For resource and linked mailboxes, only disabled user accounts are displayed. Click the desired user account, and then click OK to return to the wizard.

  • In the Select User dialog box, you can also search for a specific account by typing its name in the Search box, and then clicking Find Now.
