Exchange 2003 Auto Accept disable auto response or replies

we have exchange 2003. i have configured auto accept service for a few resources. Works ok. Is there a way to disable auto responses or confirmations for 'Accepted meeting requests'? when we add an event, the resources always send replies of acceptance or declined. I only want the declined replies. is this possible?
thx

You can turn off the auto accept responses but it turns them all off - you won't get "accept" or "decline" messages.  Details can be found here:

Ahhh... yeah, that was what I was referring to.  Forgot that it still sent responses back.  Sorry.

The response needs to go back for Outlook to do its thing with the meeting. Otherwise it stays as a pending response state. If you turn it off then Outlook will not update correctly.

which outlook will not update correctly? the meeting organizer or the resources or all? if you don't use auto accept and just set the resource scheduling in outlook to automatically accept meetings, it doesn't email back a response. I assume you are saying that outlook auto accept works differently than exchange auto accept service? The reason I installed the service was because a couple of our resources were not auto accepting properly by just using the outlook auto accept. I do like the exchange auto accept service, if only it could be tweaked a bit more.

The meeting organizer.
In the same way that if a regular user didn't respond, they would just show as tentative.

i have a resource for which i am NOT using the exchagne auto accept service, it's just using the outlook one. It accepts the meetings with no problem and they do not show up as tentaive. it updates it's own resource calendar just fine. How is that different again?
thx for quick replies

I can't answer that question. I haven't got a system here to test it with. I am on Exchange 2010 here and the resources are handled in a different way with Exchange 2007/2010.
