OK, within our Exchange 2K domain, our Free/Busy service works well with
all of our users, BUT. 

I built several public folder calendars for use in scheduling out our
conference rooms etc. They are mail enabled with 3 people who can
schedule the recourses, and everybody can review them. But, if a user
wants to schedule a time within it, he/she can't see any free/busy

For example, I go into my calendar (Outlook 2002), set an appointment,
invite the people I need, including a conference room. I then go into
the scheduling tab for free busy status. All the invitees schedules are
updated for me but the conference room shows "no information".

Is that normal? Shouldn't I be able to see the free/busy for that room?
Is it because it's in a public folder? I'm confused!


Also, if I send out the invitation to the invitees, the conference room
automatically sets that appointment (but I'm only a reviewer!) Is that

In my perfect world, I should see the free/busy status of that room, but
when I send the invitation that invitation should only go to the "owner"
of that room so she can say "yay/nay" to my request.

I'm sorry I'm rambling, but it is a problem, and I'm being leaned on to
fix it. Anyone have any inputs on setting all that up?
