OK here's the deal...

Exchange 5.5 running on NT 4.0 SP6

Trying to create a conference room as a resource, these are the steps I've taken:

Created new MAILBOX in exchange server called ConfRmB
Associated that with NT userid Administrator
I was unable to use Outlook 2000 ON the actual server, for some reason it can't find the exchange server.
I went onto a workstation and logged onto Win2K as Administrator, then went and setup Mail in Control Panel.
Added ConfRmB into the profile.
Went into outlook (on the workstation, not on server) and changed settings in Calendar option.
The resource does not give any errors when sending it a meeting request, but the free/busy information is all hashed.

I ran cleanfreebusy and cleanschedplus on the workstation (not on server)

Is the missing link getting onto outlook from the server?

Please help.  The entire company is restless from not having the ability to schedule conference rooms, and the pressure is on me (Assistant systems admin)

Do you have the permissions on the calender set for all users (or employees or whatever group you want) to REVIEWER?  You may also consider setting the 'default' to AUTHOR -- that allows users to add calendar items and edit/delete only the items that they've created, but not anyone else's.

Hope that's helpful...

Well I figured it out...
when i went under Control Panel/Mail... I hadn't added the new mailboxes into the profile correctly.. (where it asks to Check Names).
