Rudimentary but works, at least for me, albeit using Google calendar and
not Outlook as the latter is so non-standard that it's a
nightmare.  Google is marginally better although not fantastic either.

With Google calendar, the easiest way to have org and Android/Windows
synchronised is to use MobileOrg and have it take care of the
synchronisation with the calendar.  This will handle many but not all of
your cases, specifically excluded dates and end dates for recurring
events which org does not support out of the box.

Alternatively, you can have two separate processes for synchronisation
in each direction: converting from ics to org and vice versa.  This has
been discussed many times on the list and there is material on worg.

Not sure whether wrong or not but this mailing list is the best place
for discussions of this form as you are requesting a feature as opposed
to reporting a bug.
