According to the docs (, the message element of the cfexchangecalendar create event can be "A string that contains a message about the event. The string can include HTML formatting".
After applying CF2016 Update 10,
setting the message attribute in create action to any HTML formatted string shows up as plain text in the resulting calendar item. 

Steps to reproduce:
Create a new event and set the message = <h3>My Message</h3>

Actual Result: Unformatted Mail, Bodytype Text

Expected Result:Formatted Html Mail

However, if the underlying ews-api library is used directly, the content of the event is formatted html ( as expected)
