Hi,
Thanks for the above links.
Ok. I got it how to create room mailbox.
But I have another concern that how to make 2 Room list ( Female Section and Male Section) then assigned rooms based on their respective section.

Moreover, how I will be to create 2 room mailbox with same name. For instance, I have class room 2 in both sections.

Thanks for the clarifications

Just do one thing. create a group of female and male. then while creating meeting room resources allow permission only to the respective groups.

Not sure whether u can create both with same name. I would advise to create both with different name to avoid confusion. like below:

male.Classroom.2
female.classroom.2

create group of individuals and not of rooms. While creating room permissions, just select the female group for female rooms and male group for male rooms. Once this is done, each of the individual under each group will have right to access the respective category of room. The user will be able to select only a single room.

please don't mind. This will be not wise solution in my case to created groups.
I have around 80 individuals and giving membership each one of them to newly created groups would be drastic.

However, 1 thing to be noted I have already Disribution Group and all staff are the members of this group.
