Using SBS 2008 - completely updated.

I was originally trying to create a spam mailbox for quarantine purposes, and when I bring up the "select an existing user" it does not display any of the domain users (other than QB database user accounts installed on their server). I have tried changing the scope and still nothing. Searching reveals nothing either.

Then later I noticed that we had (1) disconnected mailbox, and I tried to reconnect it to the AD user - and I got the same results.

Help would be much appreciated.

The "Select an existing user" option will only show user accounts that have no mailboxes associated with them.

So for a spam mailbox like you describe you would need to have already created a user account in Active Directory (eg one named "spammailbox"), or during the New Mailbox wizard create a new account at that time.
