The Windows 2000 Server Active Directory Users and Computers MMC console is used to manage Windows 2000 users (Figure 3.6). When Exchange 2000 Server is installed, Exchange extends the standard Active Directory Users and Computers console to add Exchange-specific extensions for managing Exchange 2000 recipients (users, contacts, and groups).
The Exchange extensions include adding tabs to the Windows 2000 user Properties window. The added tabs include:
Exchange General . This tab is used to configure most basic e-mail attributes such as the users mailbox store, the users alias, delivery restrictions, delivery options, and mailbox storage limits.
E-mail Addresses . This tab is used to configure multiple e-mail addresses of various types, including address templates for SMTP e-mail, X.400 e-mail, and most other common types of e-mail addresses.
Exchange Features . This tab is used to enable Exchange features such as instant messaging.
Exchange Advanced . This tab is used to configure advanced attributes, such as the users display name , custom attributes, protocol settings, Internet Locator Service settings, mailbox rights, and the ability to hide the recipient from the Exchange address lists. By default, the Exchange Advanced tab is not displayed. To view this tab, you must select Advanced Features from the View menu of the Active Directory Users and Computers.
If you are managing a mixed environment that includes both Exchange 2000 and Exchange 5.5, you can use Active Directory Users and Computers to administer recipients from both types of systems.
You can launch the Active Directory Users and Computers console from the Windows 2000 Start menu by selecting Programs Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Users and Computers.
