I am setting up a conference room as a resource in Outlook.  Is there a way in active directories, exchange 2003, or outlook 2003 that I can set up this mailbox as a resourse only?   When "planning a meeting" in outlook, it works fine when you choice the conference room as a resource.   When you add the conference room as an attendee, it does not notify the organizer if it is busy, etc.   I would to remove the ability to add the conference room as an attendee and only be able to choose it as a resourse.  Is that possible?

Hi CBHelpDesk,

Here is the guide on doing it (ignore that it says Exchange 2000)

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF019.html

As for FORCING it to be a resouce ONLY, that is not possible natively - If you have the above working and this is your issue, then you need to do one of two things.  Educate your users about doing it properly, and/or, assign the receptionist (or office junior, or whoever) to actively manage the mailbox calendar.

Hope that helps,
