Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry for the inconvenient, i’m still new to exchange, so i not sure what is the difference between create multiple mailbox and create multiple separate account.
I’m using exchange 2003 now, i already have one mailbox for myself, e.g. like 123@abc.com , now i want to create another mailbox, e.g. 456@abc.com. Is this possible to create it? Or i need to create another new user for this new mailbox(456@abc.com)?

    Please provide the details of the Exchange version you are using. Also this question you are asking seems to contradict the title you gave the question. In the title you ask how to create multiple mailboxes for the SAME user, yet in the actual question it appears as if you are asking how to create multiple SEPARATE accounts. Please clarify and include details of the version you are using. Thanks.

    You put your additional information as the answer, next time use the "add to discussion" button to provide additional information so the answer can be put in the answer block please. Ok, your answer still contradicts itself in that you are asking about more mailboxes and yet it still seems you are asking about this for the same user. I will attempt to answer but may not be givign you the answer you are looking for since your question is still confusing. If you are asking if you can add an additional email ADDRESS of 456@abc.com to an existing user which has the email address of 123@abc.com, this does not require the creation of another mailbox. All you need to do is open the properties of the 123@abc.com user in Active Directory, go to the email addresses tab and add another SMTP email address of 456@abc.com. If you are asking if you can create another unique mailbox for a new user with an email address of 456@abc.com, why yes of course you can. You can create as many unique new users as you like, but somehow I don't think that is what you are asking.

    If you just want a different email address to dump into another folder for the same user: Setup the 2nd email address as previously suggested, then create a rule when To address is 456@abc.com then move to a new folder.

    you have to understand a concept... mailbox can have multiple SMTP addresses.(e.g. u have a user user@domain.com this user can have 2 mail 123@test.com and 456@test.com ) in this case all data will be within same mail box . the other scenario you can create another account with another mailbox..in this case you every mail address will be stored in seperate mailbox..means seperate mail store.. just fo to account properties and in mail address tab you will see available options.
