How to enable mailboxes in Exchange 2007 for users in particular OU?

With Exchange Management Shell, everything now possible:

Under Exchange Management Shell, type:

Get-User –OrganizationalUnit “DOMAINANME/OUNAME” Enable-Mailbox -Database “SERVERNAME\DATABASENAME

press ENTER.

Poo, what if I have 1000 users inside? All 1000 users will be mailbox enabled!

Is that simple? Yes, it is.

Doesn't seem to work. Tried it all in one command and two seperate commands.

Hi, you will need to put it in one line:

Get-User –OrganizationalUnit “DOMAINANME/OUNAME” | Enable-Mailbox -Database “SERVERNAME\DATABASENAME”

You will need the "|" pipe to work. Thanks for the comment.

I have known my friend Jack for some years. But he applied for help to me. His MS Exchange info was crashed. Only today I could find the proper solution and sent it to him. He was greatly surprised and thanked me a lot. Moreover he presented me a gift and this tool might solve this situation likewise successfully - edb repair.
