In Outlook, when you create an appointment, one option that you have is to "invite attendees." In most corporate settings one person takes the responsibility for scheduling the meeting and then sends out meeting invites with all of the particulars -- date, time, call in numbers for conference calls, etc. I suspect JC was assuming that you were receiving these invitations as opposed to email requests "crafted from scratch," so to speak.
Assuming that you are NOT receiving Outlook-based meeting invitations, if you install BBSmart as an email viewer you would be able to "inject" the email into either tasks or calendar, or both. Works slick.
