In this article, we are going to learn How to Create user mailbox in Exchange Server 2016. Exchange Server 2016 In has two options for creating a user mailbox. You can create mailboxes for users already in the Direct Active Directory or create new mailboxes that will eventually create the corresponding user account in the Active Directory. If you create a user mailbox, the Active Directory user account will be created and the corresponding mailbox will be created in the Exchange server.

Log on to Exchange Admin Center (EAC) then Click recipients in the features pane. Select the mailboxes tab. Click —-> Add and select the User mailbox.
Select an existing user if you already have a user account created in the Active directory. If not, you can select a new user and start filling in a box that will create a new user in Active Directory. Click Browse to browse to the corresponding user account in the Active Directory. Select the user account from the list to create its mailbox.
Click more options. Under mailbox, database click browses to specify custom mailbox database.
Select the database. Click OK. You must create a database prior to this step. Click Save.
