No, not at all. It beats using Microsoft webmail.

Speaking of which, Exchange's calendar invitations only have a URL, not
an ICS attachment, and often even lack the meeting info so I'm forced to
log in and check. Not sure if we can do anything about the latter, but
we might be able to recognize a Microsoft invitation and parse out the
salient info.

Does anyone know if Exchange is capable of emitting ICS attachments and
this is just a setting I can ask our calendar admins to tweak?

But, we'd be able to parse and pass in the fields directly?
