I'm working with O356 E3 and I've created a Resource, which is a conference room.  

My issue is this:

- Bill from Accounting can book this conference room from 11a - 12p.
- Larry from Sales can ALSO book this conference room from 11a - 12p.  

Yes, an auto-email is sent to Larry stating that the room is book, however why would Outlook even allow this appointment to be scheduled knowing that the resource is unavailable?  

I've dug around the web and found articles on double-booking a resource however, I cannot find anything that automatically prevents a appointment from being schedule if the resource the user has selected is unavailable.

Can someone point me in the right direction?  How do I fix this?
