Since I do not own a Exchange license, I cant really help you there too
much. I don't know what format exchange/outlook require for the
icals/vcards in order to be recognized. Thats also the main flaw of the
ical/vcard format - it defines the structure, but not the vocabulary
(actually kinda similar to the current discussion about the Ms-ooxml
document format discussion going on).
Maybe this is only a small problem with mail headers or something like
that. What you could do is to get some mails together that are
recognized by outlook/exchange and send me these messages as
attachments. Then I can have a look at the mail structure and maybe find
something that will help with this problem.
