Today’s video walks you through creating Equipment mailbox in Exchange 2007
Due to the similarity of the process, administrators who are already familiar with creating a Room Resource mailbox will find creating an Equipment mailbox in Exchange 2007 a simple affair. Start off by launching the New Mailbox wizard by clicking on “New Mailbox” at the Recipient Configuration work center. Instead of Room Mailbox, select Equipment Mailbox instead.
The wizard will then prompt to assign a name and password, followed by the target database in which the resource is to be created. Clicking on the “New” button will execute the Exchange Management Shell command to create the new equipment resource. Note that the icon for the resultant Exchange equipment mailbox is slightly different to that of a room resource mailbox or a user mailbox. Future lessons will discuss managing those resource mailboxes.
