I would like to configure Outlook 2010 such that when I receive an invitation for a meeting/event where I am listed as optional that a specific category is automatically assigned. Is this possible? How would I set this up as a rule?

When you are listed as optional in a meeting request, the message comes in with you in the CC field (required attendees are in the TO field).

You can set a rule with this description:

Apple this rule after the message arrives
where my name is in the Cc box
and which is a meeting invitation or update
assign it to the < whatever > category
