I would have expected mailbox creation time to be on the Exchange General (or Advanced) tab, but then again that would be too easy!! Perhaps something for Exchange 12. Thanks again.
Which takes us straight back to direct MAPI. That's too much of pain to do for free. :-)

Subject: [ExchangeList] Re: Exchange 2003 MailboxesYes, 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 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.
