How can I set an Exchange 2010 resources to allow non-conflicting occurrences of meetings to be accepted instead of rejecting all when there is one or two conflicts?

I have an Exchange 2010 environment.  When someone schedules a recurring appointment with some conflicts, they get the following message:

Your meeting request was declined because there are conflicts.
       Organizer and Time of Conflicting Meeting      
       Joe User - Wednesday, March 23, 2011 1:00:00 PM to Wednesday, March 23, 2011 1:30:00 PM

The problem is that all occurrences are then rejected, including the ones trhat do not conflict with an existing meeting.  Is it possible to configure the resource so that all non-conflicting occurrences are accepted, and the rejection message is still sent with details for conflicting meetings?

A peer swears he configured this in Exchange 2003, but cannot remember how it was done.

Thanks!

Configure User and Resource Mailbox Properties
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124255.aspx

Use the Resource Policy tab to specify under which conditions the resource mailbox automatically accepts requests

Maximum conflict instances   Use this box to specify the maximum number of conflicts allowed for recurring meetings. If the number of instances for a recurring meeting in conflict exceeds this number, the recurring meeting request is declined.

Conflict percentage allowed   Use this box to specify the conflict percentage threshold from recurring meetings. If the percentage of instances of a recurring meeting that conflicts with other meetings exceeds the threshold, the recurring meeting request is denied.
