Is there a way to prevent a user from sending out an Outlook meeting request if the resource that was added to the request has been declined by Exchange as being unavailable?

The only solution I have seen is by sending two separate meeting requests, first to the resource to see if it's available and then second to the attendees if the resource is available.

There is no way to prevent the user from sending the meeting request but the user should be able to tell if the resourse is available before sending by looking at the free/busy.

Yeah, I've got some unperceptive users.  They even get an email notification from the Auto-Accept Agent that tells them the resource booking was declined, and they still ignore it and get upset when they discover the room is booked by someone else.  Just wondering if there was a fool proof way to prevent them from booking the meeting without the resource.

Unfortunatley there is nothing you can do for them.

In OUtlook 2010, and Exchange 2010, they did introduce something called a room finder.
This would allow the user to see the resources availability as the appointment is being booked


However, even with this new advancement, its still not going to work if users ignore the feature.

Really sounds as if the users need some basic to intermediate Outlook Training
