Outlook 2007 Clients can't access Exchange 2013 Room Calendar

In Exchange Admin Center, in Recipients  > Resources: I have created several room Resource Mailboxes.  Our Outlook 2013 clients can view the calendars and book rooms as expected.

Outlook 2007 clients receive a dialog box "You do not have permission to view this calendar" "Do you want to ask Training Room to share his calendar with you?"  when trying to open the resource.

I need to know how to allow Outlook clients permissions to the Resource Mailboxes.  
FWIW:  We do not have enough Office 2013 Licenses to upgrade the Office 2007 users.

Test with one user to check if it helps you to visualize the calendar...

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity ROOM@yourdomain.com:\calendar -User testuser@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer

Schnell Solutions;  We're almost there.  I added "Author" permissions and it tests properly.  

Now, how do I add all the rest of the Outlook 2007 users, (I don't have that list) or do I give permissions to a group of users, or everyone regardless of MS Outlook version? (Figure ~200 users)

While waiting, I tried Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity ROOM@yourdomain.com:\calendar -User everyone@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer

everyone@domain.com is a legitimate group, but while it threw no errors, it did not work either.

You can try these commands. However, they will only work when users are connected to their mailbox with an Outlook client.  It will be best if you can get a list of users that are using Outlook 2007.

This command checks for and displays the Outlook client versions for those users currently connected to their mailbox with Outlook 2007...

Get-ExchangeServer | Get-LogonStatistics | Where { $_.ClientVersion -like "12.0.*" } | Select UserName,ClientVersion,LastAccessTime,ServerName

Open in new window


This command will gather the array of information into a variable...

$Outlook2007Users = Get-ExchangeServer | Get-LogonStatistics | Where { $_.ClientVersion -like "12.0.*" }

Open in new window


This last command should add "Author" permissions for the specified room calendar for all currently connected Outlook 2007 clients...

$Outlook2007Users | ForEach-Object { Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity ROOM@yourdomain.com:\calendar -User $_.UserName -AccessRights Author }

Open in new window


Hope this gives you enough information to proceed.
