Outlook 2007 not receiving resource booking confrimations

I'm running Outlook 2007 SP2 (12.0.6514.5000) against an Exchange 2003 server.

I have found that meeting requests sent to resources are not auto-replying with the "This resource has been booked successfully" or any response at all. The resource calendar in question is set up to auto-reply to calendar requests.

It appears that Oultook2003 clients do not have this issue with the same resources.

Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

No luck dj.

I'm running Oultook2007 against Exchange2003.

This issue occurs if one the following is true:
  • The resource mailbox is on a server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
  •         The resource mailbox is not configured to automatically accept meeting requests.
I am running Exchange 2003.

The mailbox is configured to automatically accept meeting requests.

Meeting requests are confirmed if I use Outlook2003.


have you check the permission settings for the resource?
