Default Calendar Invite

Please Login to Remove!

I have searched the forums for an answer to this but have come up empty. It even seems that I shouldn't be able to do what I am doing.
I have set up email on my pearl to get my email from two different ISPs that I use. This works fine. When I set up an appt in the calendar, I can click the menu button and select 'invite attendee'. If I send this to a person that is getting his email send to his BB, then when he opens my invite (on his BB), it puts the entry into his calendar. This is slick and just what I want to happen. He can then either accept or decline the invite. From what I'm reading on the forums, this shouldn't be able to happen without BES. To my knowledge, I'm not using BES. My email is strictly at my ISP and not going to any kind of server at my office. My question is this: When I look at the invite that I sent, it is being sent from one of my two email addresses. So when they reply it goes to that email. I want to have it originate from my other email address so the replies go to that address. Is there somewhere that this is set up? How does it determine the address to send from? And how the heck is this even working if I don't have BES?

Search on "calendar invite" and look for the thread started by John Clark to see details..... Long story short, you probably don't have the send using field on the screen where you create calendar entry and setup invite, depending on OS version. I'm in same boat. Haven't figured out how to change address from which invite is sent.

This has been working for some time now I'm not sure about the 8100 but the 8130 allows you to pick your calendar.
