In this post, we will learn the steps to create a User Mailbox in Exchange Server 2019. The most common task for the Exchange Server administrators is to create and configure user mailboxes.

What is a User Mailbox?

A user mailbox is the most common type of the recipient in Exchange Server that we assign to an individual user in our Exchange organization.

Each user mailbox has an associated Active Directory user account that gives the person access to the mailbox to send and receive email messages.
