You can use the Exchange Management Shell to add a resource mailbox to an address list. Only the global address list (GAL) contains all of the recipient types. The All Rooms address list, which is one of the default address lists included with Exchange, contains only resource mailboxes that are the Recipient Display type ConferenceRoomMailbox or SyncedConferencRoomMailbox.

Use the Shell to add resource mailboxes to an address list

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Address lists" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

You can't use the EMC to add resource mailboxes to an address list.

None of the default address lists installed with Exchange include equipment mailboxes. This example changes the name of the address list Resource Rooms to Rooms and Equipment and sets the IncludedRecipients parameter to ResourceMailboxes, which includes room and equipment mailboxes.

Copy Code
Set-AddressList -Identity "Resource Rooms" -Name "Rooms and Equipment" -IncludedRecipients ResourceMailboxes

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-AddressList.
