Exchange Auto Accept Agent Allow Conflicts?

I'm using the Exchange Auto Accept Agent (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=17183) on a mailbox and it's working well. The problem is that it's being shared by a department, and as such, there will be (and should be) conflicts at times as employees book meetings during the same period of time.

While there are configuration options to deal with conflicts of recurring meetings, there does not appear to be a way to allow double booking a normal meeting. Is this possible?

What version of exchange are you using.  Exchange 2010 has a feature built in, you can go into the properties of the mailbox to configure it.

Exchange 2003, unfortunately. Any other options?
I am looking for a solution exactly as DVation191. On Exchange 2003 using AAA and need to allow a mailbox to accept meetings even if it has conflict.

Anyone have any more suggestions?
Dvation191, I closely read the AAA manual and it doesn't seem to be able to allow conflicting single instance meetings.

For recurring meetings, there is the % conflict and # of conflict settings but nothing for single instance meeting conflicts.

I had to create a regular user calendar and turn on the auto accept built into Exchange 2003 and allowed for conflicts. Even though it doesn't always work, it's being monitored by 1 person who is in charge of setting up the meetings.

Can't wait for our upgrade to Exchange 2010.
