Auto add iPhone .ics attachments in exchange cals

When a user creates a calendar event with the iphone (with an iCloud email address) and invites other people it will send an invitation to the invitees inbox with an .ics attachment. Clicking this attachment will add it to the outlook exchange calendar. Is there a way I can make it automatically add to the calendar without having to click? Main reason being one of the calendars we generally want to add these events to is a shared company calendar. Running exchange 2010, outlook 2010, and the latest version of ios.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Nope. If you could do that it would open you up to some serious virus issues. Exchange makes no provisions for automatically opening or manipulating attachments aside from stripping them from emails entirely. What your iPhone users should be doing is sending the invites by using their exchange account rather than iCloud.

In that case you still have to accept the invite correct?

Yes. Group calendars can usually be set up to auto-process invites if they are set up as room or resource mailboxes, but I don't know how they react to ICS files.
