"manager" in room mailbox

Hello everybody,

I created a room mailbox in Exchange 2010. Does anybody know what the "manager" is good for in tab "organization"? What permissions does he have?

Thanks and best regards,

that is a good question :)

Wanted to say you can use that info to create some dynamic group, but Manager is not used for that, so I think that is only information field.
If you need something regarding that group, you can always contact manager, if you don't know who else :)

Hello Ivan,

thank you for your quick answer.

So the field "manager" is free by default. All the descriptions I found about how to create a room mailbox do not say anything about this point. And in Active Directory I cant see special permissions too.

Informational mostly. I am a follower of the principle that every AD object should have a manager defined

What permissions does he have?
Nothing, unless you specify that it can alter members
