Enable or Disable Automatic Booking on a Resource Mailbox

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

The Resource Booking Attendant can accept or decline resource requests based upon policies that you create. If the Resource Booking Attendant is enabled, it uses the booking policies to determine if incoming requests will be accepted or declined. If the Resource Booking Attendant is disabled, the resource mailbox's delegate must accept or decline all requests. For more information about booking policies, see Configure the Automated Booking Policies for a Resource Mailbox.
