User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20160420141331

Steps to reproduce:

* UserA has read and write permissions on userBoss calendar.
* UserA displays both calendars with a Caldav server (Oracle Convergence)
* UserA has invitation permission on userB calendar

1. UserA creates an event in userBoss calendar
2. UserA invites userB to this event


Actual results:

UserB is not invited :
- This event is not added to his calendar
- userB doesn't recieve an email with the invitation (wich is the case when userA is the organizer)

UserBoss has the event in his calendar, and userB is included in the ICS (I just edited the email domain).

Has User A also permission to send emails on behalf of userBoss here? Which email address (identity) is assocciated to the calendar of userBoss in User A's installation?

In general, we not really support secretary/boss or colleague/colleague use cases when write permissions are involved. The support is poor enough to make this a feature request instead of a bug. However, there are already other bugs around for similar aspects.

The associated email and the user A permission to send emails on behalf of userBoss doesn't matter. I tested these cases in all configurations and it doesn't change the current behavior.
