Outlook resource scheduling slow and failing to cancel appointments

I have set up a mailbox to be used exclusively as our office calendar.  I have a dedicated Outlook client which has resource scheduling automatically accepting meeting requests. I have two problems -

1. It takes 60 seconds for the appointment to be accepted and put into the diary (my current public folder does this instantly)

2. If I then cancel the meeting and send update to the office diary, this is not processed and the appointment is not removed.

Hi fuzzyfreak,
Does this issue persist? Are you the Outlook Exchange administrator?

Are you able to set up a a test account to see if you can replicate the behavior?

I have done it the other way around, i.e. from the test calendar to my calendar and the delay is still present.  I may have to raise this with Microsoft if I don't get any answers here.

This was resolved by setting up our Office Calendar as a Room resource instead.
