Setting Up Mailboxes

A mailbox is a receptacle for messages and attachments that is associated with a user's Windows NT user account. A mailbox can contain items sent from other users within an organization or from outside organizations. Users can read messages and other items in their mailbox by using their client e-mail application.

A mailbox is the most common type of recipient and typically has only one user assigned to it. However, several users can share the same mailbox. You can also import mailboxes from other mail systems or networks.

For information about other recipients such as distribution lists and custom recipients, see Microsoft Exchange Server Operations. For information about public folders, see Chapter 6, "Configuring Public Folders," and Chapter 9, "Replicating Public Folders."
