This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to customize the response message for resource scheduling. This is the response message that is included in the Accept, Decline, or Acknowledge messages that are sent back to a meeting organizer.

To run the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • Run the following command:

    Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "ResourceMailbox01" -AddAdditionalResponse:$true  -AdditionalResponse:<text>

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings reference topic.

For more information about how to use Microsoft Outlook Web Access to customize response messages, see "Resource Settings" in Outlook Web Access Help.
