Choosing a mailbox type in Exchange 2010?
We have two cover supervisors who need to both receive the cover work (and stuff) for the day by email. In Zimbra, I was able to give them both an alias of cover@... and they both received the mail. Problem - Exchange is less than happy with this setup and it doesn't allow it.
The solution is obviously to have a shared mailbox which they both have access to. The question is which type do I use? None of the three options (User Mailbox, Room Mailbox and Equipment Mailbox) really describe what I'm trying to do and I'm not 100% sure on the difference between them.
Suggestions people :confused:
License for Shared mailboxes
I have some thoughts regarding licensure cals.
By creating a mailbox that is shared by two or more users (shared mailboxes), you have to disable the user in AD, or when MS comes and knocks on the door so they'll point out that you have to pay for them "mail" enabled users (AD) and the need to an Exchange CAL for them. right or wrong?
