One of the things that have changed drastically with Exchange Server 2007 is the way in which you manage recipients (or user mailboxes as they are called in Exchange 2007). As most of us are aware, recipients were managed via the Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) MMC snap-ins back in Exchange 2000 and 2003, however with Exchange 2007, the recipient management tasks have been integrated back into the Exchange Management Console and removed from ADUC! (This means things looks like they did prior to Exchange Server 2000). In addition to performing the recipient tasks using the Exchange Management Console, you of course also have the option of using the Exchange Management Shell, which is perfectly suited for performing bulk user changes typically using one-liners (single line commands).

Hello Dude,

The Exchange Management Shell is the direct interface between you and the underlying PowerShell cmdlets that are used to query, configure and manage Exchange. Thanks for sharing it.....
