Hi,

We are using Exchange 2010 SP3 with Rollup 7 on Windows Server 2008R2 SP1, and have set up resource mailboxes.

We have found that we can have the system automatically process the calendar requests, or we can use a delegate.

Is it possible to have both? Ideally, we would like "In Policy" requests to be directed to the delegate for approval, and "Out of Policy" requests to be automatically declined.

If so, we have been unable to get it to work.

This is the current output of Get-CalendarProcessing "Meeting Room" |fl : (some items blanked for privacy)

Hi,

I don't think automatic processing and delegate work together, it will forward the request to delegate mean while it would accept it.

For achieving your goal you may try this.

AutomateProcessing                      : AutoUpdate
AllRequestInPolicy                          : false
RequestInPolicy                               : {user1, user2, user3 & etc.,)
ResourceDelegates                         : {domain.local/users/xxxxxxxxxxxxx}

Hi,

Thank you for the response.

I was afraid that may be the case. I tried those settings anyway, but it didn't seem to help.

Is there usually any delay when changing these settings?

In case I accidentally stumbled upon the answer and didn't give it time to take effect.

Hi again,

I seem to have located the problem. It was in the target calendar delegate settings. Apparently, It doesn't like 'My Delegate Only' as per below. Once I changed it to the recommended setting, conflicting events were automatically declined.

Figured out solution myself. Seems an unusual setting to throw off the auto-decline, but there you go.
