How can I disable the events from email feature in Office365 via powershell

We use Office365 for our email and we noticed recently that my colleagues event confirmations (plane and hotel reservations) are showing up on their Outlook calendars calendars as private events. I know a user can disable or modify this feature in OWA, Screenshot of Email from Events feature in Office365 OWA but is there a way to programmatically change this feature for all my colleagues?  We all use shared calendars and managing this feature on a user by user basis is not ideal for our organization.

You can do it via PowerShell:

Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration vasil -EventsFromEmailEnabled $false

Open in new window


Or bulk for all users:

Get-Mailbox | Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration -EventsFromEmailEnabled $false

Open in new window

Fantastic!  Is there a way to keep the feature but to disable the private attribute of the calendar entries created by this feature?
