Exchange 2003, Outlook 2007, AD on Server2003R2

When creating a  meeting, recipients are selected and a Room is set as a resource. Normally when you select a room as a resource it tells you "the Resources for the meeting were successfully booked".

I have a couple new rooms that do not get this message and does not show up  on calendar.

I compared the Properties of old rooms and the new rooms in AD, both are in the same OU "Meeting Rooms", and dont see any difference in any of the properties.

This is the case with any newly created Rooms.  I have even tried to make Default and All employees, publishing authors, but that didn't work either.

In E2k3
a) if the resource\Outlok tells you "the Resources for the meeting were successfully booked".
--> Then the resource mailbox is configured with the "Outlook as a resource Booking agent"

b) if the Outlook sends the email-out and then gets the email-confirmation then....there could be a chance for the "Outlook configured for the AutoAcceptAgent"

That was exactly what I needed, except one small issue.  When I go to create a meeting using that room as a resource it tells me "Room" declined your meeting because it is recurring. You must book each meeting separately with this resource."

The problem is the meeting is not recurring. I even went into recurrence and told it to remove all recurrences. Still same error.  Even if it WAS recurring, I would like that allowed.

In that same calendar options, I went to "resource Scheduling" and made sure only the first 2 boxes are checked. So "auto decline recurring" is not checked, yet I still get that error.

Should I post this as a seperate question or can you help me here?

Exactly what the problem was.  Really surprised you have there is no way to do this on the server end and requires outlook to configure.  Hopefully they changed this in 2010 version.
