In outlook when you are creating a meeting using the calendar you have the option to invite attendees. Under scheduling if you chose the Add Others drop down you have the ability to invite a resource. We would like to set up each of our conference rooms as a resource so that you can simply add it as a resource and send the invite.

How do I go about this?

Under public folders, create a folder, call it resources or whatever, within the folder create multiple calendars, call each one of them in the name of a conference room. Each one will have it's email address automatically, so you can create your meeting and invite any of those conference rooms.

link is for exchange 2000 but essentially works the same


i don't think it is mentioned in the link but this is a good tip...
 TIP: Using your Exchange Server administration tool, set the mailbox to not accept messages from anyone. (A distribution list or security group is good for this.) That way, if users forget and add the resource as a required or optional attendee, the request will bounce back to them from the resource mailbox.
