In today’s video I will show you how to create room mailbox in Exchange 2007.
To create a resource mailbox in Exchange 2007, first open the Exchange Management Console. Next, select Recipient Configuration from the navigation tree, and click on the New Mailbox wizard from the Actions panel on the right. In the opening dialog of the New Mailbox, select “Room Mailbox” followed by “New User” at the next prompt.
The wizard will then ask for the user information for the room mailbox resource, which may appear a little odd considering that this is a resource mailbox in Exchange 2007. The reason for this is simple: by registering the room resource as an object in Active Directory, an administrator can now control it with a user name and password.
In this example, a descriptive name such as ConferenceRoom1 will work well when creating a resource used to denote a conference room. As with the case when creating a new user, the wizard will eventually present a configuration summary page. Clicking on the “New” button will execute the automatically generated Exchange Management Shell command to create the ConferenceRoom1 room resource mailbox.
ConferenceRoom1 should now appear within the Exchange Management Console with an icon that represents its type as a resource. Now you created room mailbox in Exchange 2007.
