What's the benefit of custom resource properties for Room mailboxes?

I'm using room mailboxes and would like to show users the number of seats in a room and the custom properties.  How can a user see this information in Outlook?  Is there a version restriction (only Outlook 2007)?

When a resource mailbox is created (Equipment or Room) you can select an existing AD account but only if the account is disabled. Once the resource mailbox has been created the account gains an additional tab (Resource Information). In this tab is a Resource Capacity option where you can enter the number of people that can use the room, You can also add Resource Custom Properties to the Resource if required.

These are added using Set-resourceConfig via PowerShell.

"      Set-ResourceConfig -ResourcePropertySchema  allows you to add special features (whiteboard, projector, other facilities etc)

Yes, I know that.  I've done that.  The question is how can the client see this information and if they can't, what's the point?

It is listed when you use Outlook 2007 or OWA, if you are using a previous version of Outlook it is not displayed.

Where is it listed?  I'm using OWA and Outlook 2007 and I can't see it anywhere.  I thought it would be on the Scheduling Assistant tab but I don't see anything.

It is not as immediately visible as you would expect!

If you select the address book option in OWA and in the left pane select ALL ROOMS, the middle pane will show all the Rooms available and next to them will be the Capacity option

There is a similar option in Outlook when you select the users from the Address Book.

I've already removed/recreated most of the default address lists in Exchange 2007.  The All Rooms list was not recreated as it wasn't necessary for us at the time.  I'll archive this as I have a more pressing issue to resolve.

This is as correct as it can get I suppose.
