How to Create a New Email with Exchange

Exchange offers different types of Mailboxes and administrators have to create the Mailbox and configure its properties for their users. In this article, learn the different types of Mailboxes and how to create a new Mailbox to start using Email Exchange.

Types of Mailboxes

Mailbox is assigned to a single user, wherein all emails are stored. Below are the three types of Mailboxes that you can create via Exchange Manager:

  • User Mailbox – is created for an actual person or user and is given access to an Active Directory that allows the user to send and receive emails, create meetings and other appointments, and create tasks.
  • Room Mailbox – is a resource mailbox that is associated with an actual room or meeting location, like a training room or conference room, which provides users with a convenient way to book rooms and organise meetings.
  • Equipment Mailbox – is also a resource mailbox but is designated to resources that are non-location specific, wherein users can easily book and organise equipment requests for using projectors, microphones, or a company car, among others.

To create an email account, you need to:

  1. Create a New User
