Booking Resources in Outlook

I have Exchange 2003 SP2.  All my resources I want to book are in public folders, and for some odd reason only a had full show up and those that do show up, show up that have no information.  So I am lost in how to set it up.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi FabconIT,

If you really want to book resources properly, then you need to create an AD account and mailbox for each resource.  Here's a link to a page that explains in detail:

Are you trying to see these from Outlook?  If so, Right Click the folder, select PROPERTIES, and then click the "Clear Offline Items" button.

That's not what I asked.  Are you running Outlook 2003 ON THE SAME MACHINE as Exchange 2003?

No, I am not, What it looks like is that I have public folders, and I can't use them as resources.  I have to make accounts up for the resource.

Sorry, I may have misunderstood.  You don't user public folders to schedule resources.  You just create mailbox accounts for them in Exchange... the full overview and instructions are here:

Which is pretty much what I said in the first post in this question.
