New exchange 2003 installation - can't add users

I'm trying to bring up a new Exchange 2003 server, the first Exchange
server we've had at this company, running under Windows 2003 Server.
We have a domain, and the domain controller is a Windows 2000 Server,
with a Windows NT machine as the secondary DC.

I was able to get a test server up and running under VMware, but
things aren't going as well under the new production machine. I can do
the Exchange Tasks for a given user under AD, but no matter what I do,
the user doesn't show up in All Users in the System Manager console.
Am I missing something?

The mailbox needs to connected to first before it shows up in the list.
Using Outlook connect to to the account. As long as the user shows up in the
Global Address List the creation was successful.

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default.

Setting up second virtual server/connector for smart host for only select users
I currently have one domain and SMTP virtual server defined to handle all mail including internet email. We have our own MX record. Occasionally I have one user who will need to send a mass mailing based on our customer database and this clogs the system. My thought was to define a second SMTP virtual server/connector that would route the email to a smart host (our service provider offers this service). If I could direct this specific user to use this service for the mass mailing, would it help the situation? If yes, how would I go about doing it - have the two SMTP server definitions coe...

Money 2003 Deluxe Call Progress
