Exchange Calendar Events

First let me explain what my need is and how I am thinking of going about it solving it. If you could help answer my question or even provide a better solution I would be very grateful.

I have events/bills that are emailed to me that do not have a recurring due date and I am not the only one that looks at this info. My thought was to have the events/bills sent to an email address and exchange would then create a calendar event. Then everyone that has the need to review the email will have rights to the calendar. I want the email to trigger a calendar event entry for the day it arrives to bring the event to everyone’s attention. I do not want to create an event for the due date in the email.

My first thought was to create a public folder that is email enabled so I don’t have to maintain a user account just for the email address. I know that it’s recommended not to use public folders and use share point. I think this should be a simple task that I do not want to use another server for but rather use public folders. Once the email hits the public folder then a calendar event would be created in the shared calendar.

I have the public folder created and it is getting emails but I am not able to figure out if I can cause the calendar event to be created. I see other options based on the arrival of the email in public folder but not create a calendar event.

If anyone could help me or give me another idea on how to trigger the creation of the calendar event I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
