I'm trying to set up a resource (room) on exchange 5/outlook to automatically accept meeting requests.  I want it only to send the acceptance message if the user has put the conference room in as a resource.  If possible, I would like to send a decline message if they put the resource in the required or optional fields on the outlook appointment.

Hi Ascend-Admin,

Take a look at the Auto Accept Agent (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/guides/AutoAcceptAgent/d06b88d7-6fa2-4eab-b49f-4a9e159cefec.mspx?mfr=true).  It's a script based, so you might be able to modify it to do what you want.

Cheers!

When I look at the script, I don't see where it would differentiate between a request that came using the required field vs using the correct way of using the resource field.  Can you provide more insight into that issue?

Ascend-Admin,

The script doesn't make that distinction.  You'd have to modify it to get it to do so.  That's why I said, "you might be able to modify it to do what you want".  You'd need to change it to check the Type property of the Recipient object.  If the value is set to 3, then the recipient is a resource.  You'd reject all other requests.
