Exchange 2007/ Outlook 2007: Meeting rooms

Hi guys,

Have created two meeting rooms as resources everything works fine for far. What I want is these messages to pop up/notification when is already book. Like this below

The resources for the meeting were successfully booked.

Also, if the room is fullled booked how do I config it to send this notification like... room " is already booked fo rthe specified time. You must use another time or find another resource.

At the moment they are booked at the same time with no pop-up message saying it has already been booked.

Thanks for helping

I have set the meeting rooms correctly also follow the link. All i need is just two basic cmdlets to solve the issue not a link.

Following is the command for customizing messages;

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Id ResourceMailbox01 -AddAdditionalResponse:$true -AdditionalResponse:<text>

As an example:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "ResourceMailbox01" -AddAdditionalResponse:"<font color-red> Add your response</font

I don't think this is what am looking for i have gone through that link before. However, thanks for helping  I have done all the above.

All i want is when the room is booked and someone want to book it at the same time to reject it with the following message " is already booked fo rthe specified time. You  must use another time or find another resource.

Also, when the room is booked for users to have a confirmation like (The resources for the meeting were successfully  booked).


if you refer to the second link i posted - near the bottom of the page there is a section "Configuring Resource Privacy Options and Response Message"  this tells you where to modify the message that is displayed. on booking a resource.

Not exactly have read through before sending my posting.

OK - let me just clarify a little,

when someone books a resource using their own calendar and adding the resource to the attendees list as a resource, are you implying that they get no notification at all or are you wanting to change what the notification says?
bkebbayAuthor Commented:
Yes, thats exactly what I am saying. At the moment they are not getting any notification at all.

When they book a meeting they should get notification(The resources for the meeting were successfully   booked)

when the room is fully booked they should get notifcation also like ( " is already booked for the specified time. You  must use  
another time or find another resource)
OK, sorry......

have a look at this thread:

in the above article/thread they mention a few options to check in your resource mailbox and they also mention enabling public folders that resolved their similar issue.

Was there any other updates applied to the Exchange server?

It doesn't work for me I really don't know what is wrong have create the rooms as resource which I think is the right thing.

See screenshots

bkebbayAuthor Commented:
When they book the resource room they should get a notification which is screenshot 1
when the meeting room is fully booked they get a notification which is screenshot 2.
