does anyone know what rights need to be applied in ad for the contacts to
be created ?

do they get created in a specific ou? or is it the specified ou in the
exchange connector setting?

is it best to run mta and geatway as a service on same box ?

except for the mta and gateway logging where i can diagnose the issue of
non creation in AD?

any help appreciated - we all seem to be having similar problems ?

any idea when the new docs are issued or if there are any good docs out
