I have created a resource mailbox for a meeting room, is there a way for other (outside email addresses) to send an email to conferenceroom@exchangexxserver.com and receive a returned reply from the resource mailbox? I have tried it from an external address and did not get a response.

we are on 2003 exchange. we donot allow autometed responses to be sent to external email addresses. in 2007 find the location and verify if the setting is allowed or not. in 2003 it is in the esm, global settings, internet message formats, right click properties, advanced tab. it is called allow automatic replies.

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

If there are no restrictions on the room mailbox, and it auto-accepts bookings, then they should be able to book it. If you do not allow automatic replies to the internet then they will not know that they have booked it (or booking was rejected).

Set auto-accept with powershell:
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "<mailbox-name>" -AutomateProcess AutoAccept -AddOrganizertoSubject $False -ForwardRequestsToDelegates $False -DeleteSubject $False -DeleteNonCalendarItems $True

Allow auto replies via Console. Org Config / Hub Transport / Remote Domains tab
Select Default or * domain.
second tab - tick Allow automatic replies
