I need to query Exchange 2007 for the number of active meetings

Is there any way to query Exchange 2007 and find the number of ACTIVE

meetings scheduled for any user in my organization? IOW, my management

wants to know that there are X # of meetings scheduled for the next 3,

6, or 12 months involving Y number of people. (Kind of X people-

meeting-hours per month, if that makes sense.) It's for a metric to

figure out the effectiveness of a program we're instituting to reduce

the number of hours the average user spends in meetings. Thanks in

advance!

You might be able to cobble something together using Exchange EWS, but it

would be fraught with peril.

For instance, what constitutes a meeting?

Suppose Betty User has an item on her calendar "Retrieve Dry Cleaning", and

invites Bobby User " Is that a meeting?

How about Jeff Miller has a reoccurring item on his calendar "Pull little

Timmy out of the well" " Is that a meeting?
