Thanks to William and all others who responded to this.
I have found what I was looking for (ironically while listening to U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For") at: http://msexchangetips.blogspot.com/2006_08_01_msexchangetips_archive.html

Scroll down (or if you're lazy like me Ctrl + F it!!) to "Exchange: Query Mailbox Creation Timestamp".

Some other recently useful stuff on this site, thanks to James Chong - a legend!!!

Yes, in Exchange 5.5 mailboxes were separate objects with an association to a user account.  You could even have mailboxes without an associated user account.  That is not possible in AD/Exchange2k*.

I thought I would add at this point that it was possible to view what time a 5.5 mailbox was created (in Exchange Administrator), just need to find out how to find the equivalent timestamp in Ex2k3.

I can't find any supported way to do it, other than using direct MAPI calls.


I wouldn't mind being corrected either.

I don't know how to easily do that; I don't think it is a readily accessible value.  Obviously, the mailbox is an attribute of the user in AD.


But I wouldn't mind being corrected.


I would expect somewhere, maybe with some logging in place at the time, we would have been able to record when a user became mailbox enabled.
