Hi Mark,
 
Thank you for your reply,
 
Ah, I was on the right track. I just figured that there was a way to
actually define a mailbox as a "Resource", so I was looking for the
wrong thing!
 
I do have another question related to this. When a new user/mailbox is
created, it takes a while for the server to generate its email address
and add it to the GAL. How long should this take? And is it possible to
speed the process up? i.e. force a rebuild. Now I do realise that doing
this could take a long time with a large organisation, but ours consists
of only about 30 users.
 
Many Thanks
 
Jason Merrique

        Yes, you need a mailbox and account for the resources, here is a
link that applies to Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003

        Hi Chaps,
         
        My apologies if this has been asked before, but I don't seem to
have access to any archive search. (Where can I find this?).
         
        We're running Windows 2003 Server Std, Exchange 2003 Std, and
Office 2003.
         
        I've been having problems finding any information at all on how
to set up Bookable Resources in Exchange 2003. Could someone point me in
the right direction? What I mean by Bookable resources is something like
a Conference Room, a Data Projector or some other equipment. So far I've
only found info about this in Exchange 5.5 articles, it appears that I
will need to set up a mailbox associated with each resource. Is there a
way to set up a mailbox *without* linking it to an Active Directory User
object? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick here?
         
        Cheers in Advanced,
         
        Jason Merrique
