    I have SBS 2003. Using Exchange and all that.
    I recently got a IP phone system and for Voice mail, it sends it right into
    out Inbox, Pretty cool I might add.
    ANyway, the Voicemail server is running exachange as well.

    When on my SBS box, and I run the Wizard for creating a new user, it creats
    the new users mailbox on teh other exchange server. If I run "Active
    Directory Users and Computers" on my SBS box, it creats the mailbox on teh
    SBS machine like it should.

    Any idea on where I go to get it so teh wizard makes the email account on
    teh right exchange box?

    Hi john,

    Thank you for the post.

    From the description, I understand that your issue is that when you run add
    user wizard to create new user, the mailbox for the new user will be stored
    in the new exchange server instead of the SBS one. If I'm off base, please
    let me know.

    Actually, 'Add User Wizard' simply does a query and adds the user mailbox
    to the first storage group that it gets back.

    So, when you add a new exchange server to the SBS domain, the storage group
    on the second exchange server will be recognized. So the mailboxes may be
    created in it by default.

    You can move the mailbox to the exchange in the SBS server. To do so, you
    can open the exchange server management on the second exchange server,
    expand Server -> first storage group -> mailbox store -> mailboxes, right
    click on the mailbox that you want to move, select exchange task, select
    move mailbox, then you can following the instruction to finish the task.
    For detail information, you can refer to the following MS KB:

    Move Mailbox improvements in Exchange 2003;en-us;822892

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know. I am glad
    to be of assistance.

    Best regards,
