Resource displays as user in OL'07 Client

Hello, we have a couple resources (conference rooms) that when attempting to add through Outlook 2007 client it displays a user icon next to it, so when using the scheduling assistant within the appointment that the user is creating, they click "add room" and the resource will not display. They can add the room through "add attendees" then finding the resource this way.

The resource has auto accept enabled and everything else works fine as far as scheduling. I used the ps cmd "Get-Mailbox Resource1 |fl *resource*" to find out the 'type' of resource it is and it displays "room" within powershell, however it still displays as a user icon in the global address list for 07 users (and also in EMC'07). I compared the resources that display like this in the console and cannot find a difference, anyone know what I can do to resolve this? We would like these resources to display as "rooms" (door icon), im sure there is a way to do this with adversely affecting the current scheduled appointments.

Thanks in advance!

Run the following command on this resource using Command Shell and check the output.
Get-Mailbox -Identity resource1 | fl *type*
It should show -->
ResourceType         : Room
RecipientType        : UserMailbox
RecipientTypeDetails : RoomMailbox

To convert a mailbox to Room mailbox run the following command.
set-mailbox -identity resource1 -type "room"
