Equipment Mailbox in exchange 2010 not automatically declining meeting requests

We have exchange 2010 setup and have a equipment mailbox setup for a pool car. We have run the following command in power shell to Configure the mailbox to automatically process meeting requests

Set-CalendarProcessing "pool car" -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

Now this works fine and delines any requests made if the pool car is already been booked apart from if somebody had already booked it and had ticked the request as an all day event. So the new booking request is accepted but now there is a clash with the same period being booked out twice.

Does anyone know of a way to get the booking requests declined if there is already an all day booking request in place?

there are 2 issues that can cause this

1) user not booking the request as busy and just leaving it Free
2) in the resource policy un check the "Allow conflicting meeting request"

here is a weblink on how to set up an Equipment Mailbox with the command to disable allow conflicts

Not sure what is the Maxtime duration you have set ?
I would suggest users to try and book with timeframe and not select the checkbox ? Also when they do that do they select the Equipment as resource and Status as Busy ?
