  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a room mailbox in exchange 2007

    normally users who have the rights to administers it, will book the meeting room going directly into the calendar view,

    my question is

    if i try to book a meeting with some users and also wants to view the room mailbox if its available for that date and time

    i do see all available and but when i check with the administrator who manages that calendar room mailbox have some meetings booked for that date and time in it

    so wondering if i can do that. 

    Thanks for your help

  • I don't quite understand your questions but it seems like you're doing direct booking which is discouraged. Use resource mailboxes to schedule and manage room availability.

  • I agree with Jamestechman it is better to invite the room as a resource; however, I have several conference rooms in my organization that are managed the same way because of politics.  I have seen the same issue when the user who does not see the existing meetings in the room calendar is using Outlook 2007 in cache mode.  there is a problem with synchronization; you may also see items in the Sync Folders and/or items stuck in the Outbox.  Take your Outlook our of cache mode and you should see the room calendar correctly.
