Re: mail/iCal playing with exchange Ronda Brown Wed Feb 22 06:00:36 2012

Hi Eugene,

By default, Apple's Mail app and iCal app cannot read Outlook's default 
calendar invitation format. If you know that the recipient is an Apple user, 
you can set Outlook to send out the meeting requests and event invitations in 
the iCal format.

1 Open Outlook.

2 Select "Tools," then "Options," then "Calendar Options."

3 Select "Advanced Options." Enable "When sending meeting requests over the 
Internet, use iCalendar format" by checking the respective box. 

Click "OK/Apply" to save the changes.
