Is there a way to set the Pidgin status from Outlook's calendar?

Currently no. Maybe you could write an app that does that. It would be awesome!

What makes you so sure there isn't? This is not really a useful answer. – slhck May 13 '11 at 22:10
As someone that hangs out in the Pidgin developer mailing list, I can confirm there is no such feature. It would require someone write a plugin for MS Office that sends a message externally. – Phil Hannent May 30 '11 at 6:24
