I'm trying to setup Exchange so that it will create mailboxes for each AD user, when I go into Exchange and tell it to create a mailbox it removes the user account from AD and I can no longer manage it except from Exchange (almost like a convert).

In ADUC, search for the username - is it possible another admin has scripted things such that creating a mailbox for a user causes it to be moved to a different OU?
What version of Exchange and at what functional level is your AD? What is the process or command you're using to create mailboxes?
To answer your question of how it should work, you have two options:
With the version info, we can hopefully help you narrow it down.
