Creating a Public Unattended Calendar in Exchange 2007

Creating and sharing a calendar in Exchange 2007 is the easy part, but allowing meetings to be created and automatically accepted requires the use of  the Exchange Powershell (where ResourceName is the name of the mailbox holding the calendar):

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings “ResourceName” -AutomateProcessing:Autoaccept

This will create the meetings when an appointment email is sent to the mailbox, but the titles of them will be blank. The subject of the email can be used instead:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings “ResourceName” -DeleteSubject:$False

Finally assigning Full Access Permissions to the mailbox will allow users to view it without first creating a calendar entry, the same group of users will also be able to edit the entries. If it’s a calendar for everyone to use then assign the Everyone group full access.
