1.4 Relationship to Protocols and Other Algorithms

This algorithm enables a mapping between the iCalendar file format (as described in [RFC2445]) and a Calendar object (as described in [MS-OXOCAL]), which can be updated and sent using the protocols described in [MS-OXCMSG] and [MS-OXOMSG].

When used as a meeting request, the iCalendar file format can be embedded as a MIME part in an e-mail as described in [RFC2447] and [MS-OXCMAIL].

For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
