So far it is going well, but I have a question:
I plan on storing the outlook meeting entry IDs in the created tasks

outlook EntryID is a 140 (!) digit hex number.)
Org handles an ID property which can be an arbitrary string, but it
must be unique.
So you could directly use these.
P.S. Why they felt compelled to make an ID 140 hex digits is beyond me.
which is about 4 times 10^168, which is 100 million times the number
of particles in the universe squared, so 100 million times the number
of possible particle-particle pairings across the entire universe.
Only very blown-up egos will think they'll ever get this many emails
