resource mailbox

Posted on 2009-12-16

Environment  - Exchange 2007
Problem - We need a shared calendar (resource mailbox?) that auto accepts meeting requests and auto denies conflicting requests shared among a domain of users that will add this calendar in Outlook 2007.

Testing we have done -
- Public folders: does not allow for auto acceptance + auto deny conflicting requests.
- Converting a mailbox into a resource mailbox. The problem here is we can not log into the mailbox after it has been created nor can we find a way to globally share this object with the associated domain (or even specific users). We need this to be a client-side configured shared calendar within Outlook 2007 that shows free/busy information for meetings/etc that auto accepts and denies conflicting requests.
- Mailboxes configured with resource scheduling (auto accepting requests + auto denying conflicting requests) for specific users + delegating shared calendar rights work except it does not block duplicating events (same time frame).
