  • LDAP is a protocol to query the information in AD.

    To create a mailbox in Exchange, you need to use the respective APIs or use the Exchange Management Shell.

  • Shabarinath,

    You will need to use Exchange PowerShell to create mailboxes. Exchange Web Services is primarily used for client access.

  • I am not a programmer to give an authentic answer.

    On my knowledge, Exchange 2007 onwards provide a new service called Exchange Web Service which will provide an interface for programmers to the exchange server.

    Refer the below site for details
