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....

I am using Thunderbird 68.8.1 and can confirm this bug.

I have some calendars in my Nextcloud instance where my e-mail uses @filipesaraiva.info domain. In my Thunderbird, I configured a calendar using my @ufpa.br e-mail identity, as presented in the figure at Comment #11.

The problem is, when I try to invite people to an event created in that calendar, the event organizer is set to my @filipesaraiva.info e-mail, as presented in Comment #12. Unfortunately, besides Thunderbird doesn't get the correct e-mail configured to that calendar, there is no way to change the organizer e-mail to other e-mail identity configured in Thunderbird.

I would like Thunderbird get the correct e-mail set to a calendar, or at least allow to change the organizer to other configured e-mail identity.
