What is the easiest way to get it to work? I've been playing with Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data; and it seems like this is the way to go.

This is the documentation for creating appointments with the EWS Managed API:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd633661(v=exchg.80).aspx#Y100

I assume that you are writing a server app, so you'll need to to create appointments for other users. In which case, you'll also need to incorporate impersonation:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd633680(EXCHG.80).aspx

If you are writing a client app, just use the Outlook Object Model. This example is VB.NET, but you get the idea... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313788

Thank you for all the info. I'm trying to get it to work but it gets me an error all the time. I attached the API dll file but it seems like it doesn't work properly. Take a look at the screen shots

How to Create Failover DNS Record Sets in Route 53

Route 53 has the ability to easily configure DNS record sets specifically for failover scenarios. These failover record sets can be configured to failover to full-blown deployments in other regions or to a static HTML page that informs your customers of the issue.

Looks like you added the reference correctly, so I don't see why Visual Studio is complaining. Is Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices in the Object Browser (like in my screen shot)?

Try building my project file. It assumes that the Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll is in a subfolder named "EWS".

 EwsManagedTest.csproj Program.cs

It should be pretty similar to the AssemblyInfo.cs in your project. AssemblyInfo.cs

It worked. Thank you very much for your help. This is my code for any future reference:

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Security;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;
using Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data;

namespace EwsManagedTest
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback +=
            delegate(
                object sender,
                X509Certificate certificate,
                X509Chain chain,
                SslPolicyErrors sslPolicyErrors)
            {
                return true;
            };


            string userName = "login";
            string password = "password";
            string domain = "domain.com";
            string exchangeWebServiceUrl = "IPADDRESS/ews/exchange.asmx";
            ExchangeService service = new ExchangeService();
            service.Credentials = new WebCredentials(userName, password, domain);
            service.Url = new Uri(exchangeWebServiceUrl);

            Appointment appointment = new Appointment(service);
            appointment.Subject = "Testing";
            appointment.Start = DateTime.Now;
            appointment.End = appointment.Start.AddHours(1);
            appointment.Save();
           
        }
    }
}
