Then, the technology would also provide recipients with an email interface they can reply to the recipient with. The recipient could then integrate the reply info back into their BlackBerry Calendar.

The methods for making this work seamlessly are described in the BlackBerry Patent app entitled Electronic device and method of messaging meeting invitees.

In this particular case, a read of the Abstract will give you a good introductory view of what's being proposed and how these functionalities would work:

A method of composing an email message at an electronic device and an electronic device operable to carry out the method are provided. The method includes receiving an email command from a user input of the electronic device through a calendar user interface, the email command relating to at least one of a plurality of intended attendees of a calendared meeting, and providing an email composition interface in response to receiving the email command.

The email composition interface includes a user-editable portion of an address field. The user-editable portion of the address field is automatically populated with email address information for the at least one of the plurality of intended attendees.

Like I said, you can do this already, but what I see here is a methodology to shorten the steps
