It requires, minimally, that the Exchange System Management Tools be
installed where the mail-enable step is being executed. 

(There are some bright people on this mailing list that know there are
some specific situations where that isn't true, but for most purposes
that is what you should do.)

Now, there is a difference between "mail enabled" and "mailbox enabled".
When you mail-enable an object, it doesn't create a mailbox, it just
creates an email address.

When you mailbox-enable an object, it creates a mailbox, and you have to
define the message store where that mailbox is going to be.

Hi all,

One more question on this:

Does the mail-enable step need to be performed from the Exchange Server
itself, or can it be done from anywhere that an Administrator has Active
Directory access (Active Directory Users and Computers MMC)?

If done from outside the Exchange Server, where are the smarts to tell
the AD to enable this mailbox on such and such Echange Server?

Best regards
