I have a microsoft platform, with active directory and exchange.
Normally, all AD users are assigned mailboxes associated to that userid. Our organization employs many transient personnel, who come for a few months, then leaves. Usually one person replaces the next.
My problem is exchange email. When Assigning a user an entry in Active Directory, Exchange tabs allow me to create a mailbox, usually personalized for the user by user id. For example: user1 would normally be given email address email@example.com.
What I need to do is have a general exchange mailbox, that I can assign multiple users to, to which is their primary mailbox, not a secondary or a mailbox that is given privilidges to.
This way, I can create user1 with email firstname.lastname@example.org, and when user1 leaves I can create user2 with email email@example.com. I won't have to burn licenses or mailbox space on user1@... and user2@....
Thank you very much. Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
