1) Security
2) Its up to you how you structure your AD
3) They need different aliases
4) Answered in 5
5) Have multiple Recipient Policies and configure the filter to assign the
appropriate address to the users mailbox
6) You can only have 4 Storage Group and 5 Store per storage group, so its
upto you if you want multiple store, it makes recovery quicker if you have
multiple store, plus one company screwing up wont effect the others, plus
you can have different limits etc assigned to each store.
7) Why?
8) Don't understand the question, what's a "virtual" user?

(1) The POP3, NNTP, and IMAP services were disabled by the Exchange Server
installation. I have set these to automatic to send and recieve email, but
does anyone know why they were disabled?

(2) What is the correct hirarchy in Active Directory for users/mailbox setup
(ie. should each domain have an 'Organizational Unit,' 'Group,' or 'Shared
to contain/be associated with users)?

(3) When creating users, does every user have a different name? And if so,
how does one resolve the problem of common user names or aliases like info@,
sales@ etc.?

(4) How do I correctly configure recipient policies for my setup (do I need
one policy for each domain etc.)?

(5) When I created a new user, they automatically get email addresses at all
of my domains (I think this is due to my recipient policy configuration). I
am not given the choice of domains to associate the user with. Every user is
set to my primary domain by default. How do I change this, so that with the
creation of each new user I am given the choice of domains to associate that
user with?

(6) In Exchange System manager should I create a different store for each
domain/organization? Are there any pros/cons I should know about?

(7) How do I check mailboxes like 'System Attendant'
and 'System Mailbox'?

(8) How do I create aliases and virtual users? Is there a central
location/flat file where I can edit all users?
