    Quick question,

    I noticed that after I installed Exchange 2010, I don't see any more of the tabs for email under the users properties in Active Directory 2003. In order for me to do any mailbox management, I would have to do it from EMC. Would I need to install some kind of a connector to be able to see the exchange tabs in user properties? For Exchange 2003, I needed to install ESM to see the tabs. Would I need to have a 2008 AD environment instead maybe?

    Or is this a new way of managing mail for users?

    It's the new way. All tasks to be done in EMC or EMS.

    Personally I have mixed feelings about this.
    On one side it's good that all Exchange related tasks have been incorporated in EMC/EMS and kept away from AD console. On the other hand there are some tasks which will require you to use both.

    The latter is not such a big problem as to install Exchange you need AD management tools installed anyway, but if you want to install tools on workstation then you need both.

    you can also now do a lot of AD settings from ECP which is nice because of this though, which makes delegation so much nicer for me, i hated giving HR AD Users & Computers LOL

    It's a bummer they took out the 'create new user/mailbox' from the ECP.. it was in the beta but not in the RTM
    it would of been nice, now i still have to actually create the user/mb from EMS/EMC before HR/Department Managers can fill in all the crap they need to populate
