Hello experts,

I just setup the resource scheduling mailboxes on exchange 2007. It works pretty much how its suppose to except I have a couple of questions that i hope someone here can answer for me:

1. When a meeting request is sent out and it gets declined because the room is already in use for that time slot i see that the person that was invited gets the invite and can still accept it. Why is that? I thought since it was declined to the person who created the request it would also be declined to person that was invited??

2. Lets say I schedule a meeting in BoardRoomA from 1-4pm. I than have "Brenda" create a meeting request for BoardRoomA as well but from 11-2pm. It gets rejected but it still shows up on the calendar even though it overlaps by an hour?? I see that this only happens on meeting requests that slighly overlap.

Any help is much appreciated!

1. Nope
In E2k7 resources scheduling we expect the organizer to plan\visualy check the availability before sending-out the resource
just in case, if the resources gave a declined message back to the organizer
The same meeting-requests should be used to include\add other resources.

(this will update the old meeting-requests with the modified details..so the end-participants just need to accept one meeting-requests finally)

2. But the first person to book the meeting-request should get the Accepted response
The second person should get the Declined response
Is this happening correctly?
