You can do this in the GUI under Recipient Configuration > New Mailbox > User Mailbox > Existing User, and choose the user you wish to create the mailbox for.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998319.aspx

From the shell: Enable-Mailbox john@contoso.com -Database "MyServer\Mailbox Database"

You must be logged in with an account with sufficient privilege to create a mailbox in Exchange.

As an aside, there have been reported issues with the built-in Domain Administrator account and Exchange 2010. If you experience any issues with the built-in account, create a new account with administrative privilege.

Thanks Mike,dear as I use the exchange server 2010 for the first time and only want to configure mailbox so as there are any more setting or it is enough. –  Dawood Said Oct 10 '12 at 5:59
    
Since this is the first mailbox, I assume you are going to store the data in the default database. In the GUI you can set an alias as well. For a simple exchange configuration, setting up the initial users in the default database should be sufficient. You can always migrate them to another database at a later date. –  Mike Oct 10 '12 at 12:01

You can create mailbox in Exchange using Powershell command or using Exchange Management Console (EMC). But, Process is little bit long using EMC. Go though this Microsoft help section > technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998319(v=exchg.141).aspx
