Exchange 2003 calender auto accept

Hi,

I have created a mailbox in exchange 2003 and we use its calender for booking one of our conference rooms. Now the challenge is populating the calender with meeting requests.

When a request is sent to a normal user, as soon as the mail is processed by outlook, the calender event gets registered in the calender.

Since this mailbox that we created is not opened in outlook, can we set some configuration\setting in such a way that the mailbox automatically accepts all calender requests and publishes them in the calender?

If no, Install auto accept agent on the mailbox server.
Register this mailbox by running the register mailbox vb script (inside Exchange installation directory - > Agents -> Auto accept agent)

Good luck

no need for the auto accept agent.
check the "Email Accounts" section in http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Booking-Resources-ExchangeServer-2003-Outlook-System-2003.html

Rakesh, for your solution to work, outlook needs to be open all the time. this is not practical as the mailbox is actually not a user but a resource calender.

Shaba, We wanted to avoid installing something on the exchange server and are wondering if there's some sort of settings that can do the job :(

Auto-accept agent is a component of exchange. And I haven't heard about any alternative for this :)
