So I think this is with a newer version of Outlook, because I received one
of those this week.  But the ordering was:

However, I actually agree with Robert here.  A standards-compliant
MUA should be able to handle that fine, because like Robert said if
a MUA handles text/calendar it should use that one.  And in my case
the text/plain and text/html just contained the "DESCRIPTION" field
of the text/calendar entry.  This is further confused because exmh
shows the MIME parts in original message order, but nmh reverses
multipart/alternative part ordering (like I said before, I think that is
wrong but not everyone agrees).
