Use the General property page to select the primary Windows NT user account that will be associated with this mailbox. You also use this property page to record basic information, such as the user's name and location.
Note You can also view properties for a mailbox by selecting a mailbox, and then choosing Properties from the File menu.
You can specify user name information, the user's postal address, and other contact details to identify the user associated with this mailbox. If you are creating a shared mailbox, you can use a generic name, such as Reception Desk.
You can configure Microsoft Exchange Server to generate the display name and alias name automatically as you type the first name, middle initial, and last name for the mailbox. For more information, see "Auto Naming" later in this chapter.
|First||The optional first name (up to 64 characters).|
|Initials||The optional middle initial (up to 6 characters).|
|Last||The optional last name (up to 64 characters).|
|Display||The name (up to 256 characters) that appears in the Administrator window and the Address Book.|
|Alias||Another identifier for a mailbox. The limit is 64 characters.|
Each mailbox must have at least one Windows NT user account, called the primary account, associated with it. By default, the primary account is given Owner permission on the mailbox. This means that a user logged on to Windows NT with the primary account can log on to a mailbox with full permission to send and receive mail. If you are using Windows NT User Manager to create this mailbox, the primary Windows NT account defaults to the name of the user you created in User Manager. After you choose a primary Windows NT user account for a mailbox, you can use the Permissions property page to give other Windows NT user accounts permission to use the mailbox.
Note The Permissions property page is not shown by default for mailboxes. To configure a shared mailbox, you must enable the Permissions property page by choosing Options from the Tools menu. Select the Permissions tab, and then select Show permissions page for all objects.
