Most casual users of Outlook know how to set a meeting up with an individual and add additional recipients. The issue is needing to schedule a meeting with all of the recipients of an email. If there's 18 people in an email chain, it would be very handy to have an option to schedule a meeting with all of them instead of having to add them individually.
