Microsoft Trims Set of Calendar Events Created from Email

Exchange Online will soon drop processing email to create calendar events for things like restaurant reservations. The good news is that travel details are still supported, meaning that you won’t have to extract and enter details like flight numbers, departure times, and so on. And notifications for your Amazon deliveries continue too.

Controlling how Exchange Online Creates Calendar Events from Email

Exchange Online reads inbound email to know when messages contain events that should end up in user calendars. OWA is the only client that exposes the settings to control what events are processed, but all clients can display the events Exchange creates. Some new cmdlets are available to support controlling the settings centrally.
