Well, I was figuring you would probably want to save the invite as a reminder, 
thus the save-to-file step.  Once it's in the file you can then do 'rsvp y|n 
filename' where rsvp is the script that cracks the file picks out the return 
address, and sends an appropriate yes/no reply message. Or have the script take 
a message number and let it extract the invite attachment for you.

I can't image you receiving a message with more than one invite in it, so if 
message 100 contains the invite, the rsvp script could accept a message number, 
dig in to find the appropriate mime section, parse the reply address, and 
compose/send an appropriate response.  E.g.  rsvp no 100.

And if you do think you might get more than one invite, extend the script to 
accept sub-part identifiers:  rsvp yes 100.3

It might be a bit tedious to code up, but it's certainly not hard.
