S+ is shorthand for "Schedule +". It no longer exists but it remains in the vocabulary. It is the same as a meeting request.

The typical usage is something like this: “Ess Plus me on that.“ In 98 or 99, a few testers on Outlook tried valiantly to get the company to use the phrase “outcal“, but it never caught on.
