Resource mailboxes are mailboxes that represent meeting rooms or shared equipment. Resource mailboxes can be included as resources in meeting requests, providing a simple and efficient way to utilise resources for an organisation.

Room mailboxes are assigned to a meeting location, such as a conference room, auditorium, or training room. Equipment mailboxes are assigned to a resource that is not location specific, such as a portable computer projector, microphone, or company car.
