C#, VB and Exchange


I am working on a new web site for our company and have started to move my
code from VB.Net to C#. I have ran into a snag that I can't seem to figure
out. I am trying to create an Exchange mailbox for a user ID that I just
created using System.DirectoryServices. I have created the user, set the
password, and enabled the account.

When I try and create the mailbox I get a "The parameter is incorrect" error
message on mailbox.CreateMailbox(strServe); line. I have ran just about
100% of this code in VB.Net and it works great. I tracted back the
strServer in the configuration view of ADSI Edit. It appears to be correct
and if I take the exact text it creates and put it in a VB app it works.
It looks like it's the way I am implementing the following two lines.

mailbox = (IMailboxStore)oUser.NativeObject;

The stack trace on the error page is showng this

[ArgumentException: The parameter is incorrect.]
CDOEXM.IMailboxStore.CreateMailbox(String HomeMDBURL) +0
Crossmark.Enterprise.CAPUserCreate.Common.Exchange .CreateMailBox(String
strUserPath, String MailBoxEnding, Char firstletter) in c:\documents and
settings\tim.sapp\my documents\visual studio
projects\crossmark.enterprise.capusercreate\crossm ark.enterprise.capusercreate.common\exchange.cs:89
Crossmark.Enterprise.CAPUserCreate.UI._default.Cre ateUser_Button_Click(Object
sender, EventArgs e) in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\crossmark.enterprise.capusercre ate.ui\default.aspx.cs:122
System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button.OnClick(EventArgs e)
Looks like it does not list the strServer when it tries to put the info into
the user account.

I am using the same security premissons in the VB and C# app so I know that
is not a problem.

When I put the create mail in a try the exception message is "The parameter
is incorrect" and the InnerException is blank.

Here is what I am running on...

WinXP Pro
Visual Studio 2003
..Net Framework 1.1 (1.1.4322 SP1)
CDO Exchange Managment installed.

Exchange 2003

Thanks for any help that yall con provide.
