User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

I'm using Google Calendar as only calendar in Thunderbird (as CalDAV calendar, not using Google Provider), while my e-mail is corporate and I populated calendar properties with this corporate email.

The problem appears when I create invitation.


Actual results:

There is a problem with invitations, which I issue to other people - when I create event and send it to other people, Lightning do two things:

- create and send mail with the following headers:

Return-Path: <yyy@xxx.com> // This is my corporate mail
From: "doka.ua@gmail.com" <yyy@xxx.com> // While From combined with two RFC822 addresses (CN is gmail address, while address itself is corporate email)
To: "XXX XXX" <xxx@xxx.com> // To is attendee, which is ok

- while invitation itself (.ICS) contains the following entries (check ORGANIZER entry):

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
PRODID:-//Mozilla.org/NONSGML Mozilla Calendar V1.1//EN
VERSION:2.0
METHOD:REQUEST
[ ... ]
ATTENDEE;ROLE=REQ-PARTICIPANT;PARTSTAT=NEEDS-ACTION;RSVP=FALSE;CN="XXX XXX":MAILTO:xxx@xxx.com
ORGANIZER;X-SENTBYCN="doka.ua@gmail.com";SENT-BY="MAILTO:doka.ua@gmail.com";CN="doka.ua@gmail.com":MAILTO:yyy@xxx.com
[ ... ]
END:VCALENDAR

Due to this, all recipients treat this invitation as from my @gmail account and all replies to this invitation (accepts, rejects, tentatives) going to my gmail address, which isn't acceptable.


Expected results:

It's not bad to have a way to make Lightning use configured e-mail for both From and .ics files and in correct way:
- CN must be my real name
- @gmail address must be never used

There - http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2460065 - is short explanation on why this, possibly, happens. Lightning must have a way to override e-mail which is provided by server.
