Cannot select/change event sender/organizer
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20100915 Lightning/1.0b2 Thunderbird/3.1.4 I have several mail accounts within Thunderbird, and when I create an Event using Lightning I cannot select which account the Event "belongs" to. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a 2nd or 3rd mail account in Thunderbird 2. Install Lightning 3. Create an event 4. Pull all of your hair out when you realize you cannot select a "Sender" Actual Results: Lightning pegs all Calendar info to one account. Expected Results: Should be able to have a calendar for each account? Anger and Frustration.
Already possible. Switch to calendar or task tab. In the left pane you'll see a list of calendars. Double click a calendar entry or choose Properties... from context menu. Select the email account for the calendar. To create one calendar for each account use menu File > New > Calendar and proceed as above.
Stefan, it is possible to change these settings, but it simply has no effect. I can confirm the bug in my environment, and it's very annoying. TB 3.1.5 / Win32 Lightning 1.0b2 additional extensions: - german dictionary - enigmail - display mail user agent
Ok, I could solve this issue for me: I am using a CALDAV-based online calendar, and it seems that Thunderbird uses the eMail-address stored in the online calender instead of the identities configured for the Thunderbird mail account. Changing the mail address in the DAVical account on the server to the one I want to use causes Thunderbird to use this address as identity, too.

It seems this is still an issue and I can duplicate on my setup.Thunderbird 52.0b2 with Lightning 5.4. Hard to believe this is a 6 year old report....
