Is it possible to view an Outlook Resource Mailbox (Conference Room Calendar) in Public Folders?

My users would like the ability to view the Conference Room Calendar in Public Folders as well and being able to Invite it as a Resource.

It is possible to create a public folder which holds calender options. Not quite sure if you can invite the calander to join the Conference. First off all, log in using the admin account (in Outlook version, not using ESM) and create a public folder calander like you would create any folder. Then, make sure to give it an e-mail address using the ESM and make sure thay are visible on the Global Address List. Then, let them invite the Conference Room.

Only problem is that someone needs to accept the meeting, else it's not definite. Or you need to appoint one user who can create appointments in the Conference Room...

Although that is a good solution, I'm looking for something more automated.

Basically the Resource Calendar is working fine, users jsut want an easy way to view the Conference Room Schedule through the Public Folders.

I'm currently looking into more options with CDO.

BTW, using Exchange Server 5.5 on Win2k Server.

I think, if you need to do some more flowcharting business like automated calendar schedule you will need to go to 2K or 2K3.. I always think that 5.5 is only made to send and receive mail, nothing more nothing less.. Whereas 2003 and 2000 are more of a complete program...

Still, we are using 2K3 Exchange and i haven't found a way yet (not without buying extra tools that is) to get this automated (oh well, i'm no programmer anyhowes, just an admin ;))
