    disagree with this. Meeting invites often contain background data that is needed for future reference.

    A move from inbox is appropriate, with the existing breadcrumb that you've accepted or declined the meeting as a permanent record of attendance.

    To retain data, I've proposed an idea that the OneNote integration be changed from the existing "Note" function... it should behave more like a regular Mail Item, where you can save the entire message.

    This depends on user preference. I would prefer to see a grayed out option, the reason being - If time permits I may accept it.

    Or I may just change my mind.

    Or the meeting organizer convinces me to accept it for some reason - I should be able to go back and accept it.

    Overall - Google gives the user a choice to configure this. Whether you want to see declined events on your calendar or remove them. I would see a need for this.

    Agree with this; it's easier to manage my diary from the calendar view. I'd like the email message invite to then be cleared from my inbox so that I can see items to be actioned rather then have it "littered" with invites.
