Restricting Unauthenticated Users


Topic Last Modified: 2006-06-29

This topic explains how you can set delivery restrictions to prevent unauthenticated users from scheduling requests to a resource mailbox.

To prevent unauthenticated users or users who should not schedule the resource from scheduling a meeting, delivery restrictions should be used. Use one of the following methods to prevent users from booking a resource:

  • Do not register the resource mailbox with the agent.

  • Use delivery restrictions. If a user is not allowed to schedule the resource, they will receive a non-delivery report (NDR).

To set delivery restrictions for a resource mailbox
  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. In the console tree, expand the domain. Double-click Users.

  3. In the details pane, double-click the mailbox-enabled user who you are modifying.

  4. On the Exchange General tab, click Delivery Restrictions.

  5. In the Delivery Restrictions dialog box, under Message restrictions, select the restrictions to apply.
