    Hello,

    I am building an application that will allow a user to use a ColdFusion interface to add/edit/delete/change passwords in Windows Exchange 2003. While I have the CF code in place, what I cannot seem to find is a command line entry to add an Exchange-enabled user to the domain. For example, I can use:

    NET USER testuser password /ADD /DOMAIN

    to add a user to the domain. However, this user does not have an Exchange mailbox enabled. A server administrator would still have to RDP in and enable it through the Windows interface.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to do this and, if there is, what it might be?

    Well Does commands are not really that useful beyond simple stuff. You need to use scripting with VBS (Visual Basic Scripting) and use ADSI (Active Dir System Inferface) and CDO (Common Data Objects) for Exchange to add AD accounts and Exchange accounts.

    The Power Shell (Monad) is used for Exchange 2007 not Exchange 2003.

    You have better access and control with Exhcange 2007 and Powershell, but that doesn't mean you can't use it to manage exchange 2003.
