Create an Outlook public folder to book calendar resources

Learn how to create Microsoft Outlook public folders that allow users to schedule calendar appointment items, such as conference rooms.

We just migrated from Exchange 2000 to Exchange Server 2003. Now when I try to create a public folder in Exchange System Manager (ESM), by default it creates a Mail Items folder. I would like to have calendars in my public folders so users can book conference rooms for certain days and times. How do I do this?
You'll want to create the public folders from within Microsoft Outlook and then create a new folder that contains "appointment items."
