IFS Directory for a New Mailbox Not Created Until Mailbox Activity Occurs

I know the resolution below is done by design.

But is it a problem when only logging into Outlook
creates the mailbox and not sending an email to it.

Everything is fine now. I just want to make sure there is
no problem.

Q252088

If you log on to the newly created mailbox using a MAPI-
based client (such as Microsoft Outlook 2000), or if you
send a mail item to the new mailbox from another user,
then the issue described above ceases because the mailbox
is initialized by any of the two actions.

-Or-


If you log in from Outlook Web access, this also creates
the mailbox.
STATUS
This behavior is by design.

Hi,

No problem at all. The actual mailbox will be created either way.
