Confidential Access on Meeting Room Content in Outlook

Hi,

Currently when a user books a meeting room in Outlook and the mark it as confidential people who look at the meeting room mailbox can still see the meeting content because they have access to that meeting room calendar.

Is there a way to keep the content private still so nobody can view it other than the intended?

We've tried classing it as confidential but this isn't working for us as it should?

Cheers

Jack

Hello,

On the Resource Information tab of the room mailbox, uncheck the box "remove the private flag on an accepted meeting". This will allow users to set the meeting as private.

Hi Jamie,

Yeah I ended up figuring this out - I did it with powershell to go through the OU with all the mailboxes and it went through and done them all. The code is as follows. We run this as a scheduled job so that means whenever new meeting rooms get created they'll always have this setting applied :-)

If ((Get-PSSnapin | where {$_.Name -match "Exchange.Management"}) -eq $null)
{
      Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
}

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "CONTOSO/Exchange/Resources"

ForEach ($mailbox in $mailboxes){
      Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity $mailbox -RemovePrivateProperty $false

Cheers
