2.2.162 [RFC6047] Section 1.1 Related Memos


The specification describes how iMIP relates to iCal [RFC5545] and iTIP [RFC5546].

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft Outlook 2013

iTIP is interpreted as being the use of iCalendar format to represent scheduling objects. iMIP is interpreted as a subset of iTIP, specifically a method for transmitting iTIP data over e-mail without any embedding. In particular, iCalendar files attached to an e-mail message is not considered in the scope of the iMIP protocol.

In some places, [RFC6047] does not imply that there is a difference between iMIP data and iCalendar files attached to an e-mail message. Outlook renders these two scenarios differently, as detailed in the following sections.
