Exchange 2007 Room Account Read Only

We have room mailboxes setup in our Exchange 2007 environment.  I have delegates setup to manage the rooms.  However, we have a group of secretaries that need read-only permission to the room calendars too.  Is there a way to make an AD group and give it read-only rights to these room calendars?  These secretaries need to be able to see the actual meetings in the calendar, but not delete them or create new ones.
Just so you know, I know how to use the "Scheduling Assistant" in Outlook 2007, but I need them to see more information about the actual meetings.

I don't believe there is another way to set read-only permissions other than on the calendar permissions when you open the mailbox with outlook.

You can have more granular control of permissions on Outlook calendars by right clicking the calendar, clicking properties, then clicking on the Permissions tab. Click Add users and add the secretaries to the list of users, then setting the permission levels you want. I believe you can only use distribution groups to grant permissions for share calendars, though I could be wrong about that.

So can I log in as me (domain admin) and then set the permissions from my Outlook or do I have to log in as the room account.   As I recall, the room mailboxes are disabled when they are created.

As long as you are attached to the mailbox you wish to set permissions are you can login as whoever you want to.
