Default So it is impossible to specify which Email account meeting requests are sent from?

So it is impossible to specify which Email account meeting requests are sent from?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have done many searches on multiple forums and I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible, but that just doesn't seem like it could be correct. I mean BB's are so Email-centric and Business-centric, how could such a basic and commonly used feature be missed?

What I am refering to is when I create a appt and then "invite attendee" they always get sent by the same Email account (not the default account) and there is no way to change this.

I tried deleting the account that they always get sent from and they then get sent from the account I want them to go from, but as soon as I re-add the account they were getting sent from it again starts sending them from that secondary account.

Based on my searches it appears that everyones BB randomly picks one of your accounts and then will always send from that account and there is absolutely nothing anyone can do about it, but I am really hoping someone has figured out a fix for this...

BTW I am on BIS using a 8100.

Please help if you can. Thanks.

My experience is that you had to use one default.

I'm not sure about the Pearls but I can choose between my emails for the "Send Meeting Request Using" option. Of course, that only comes out once you select Invite Attendee.

The one default I mentioned was a work around. I actually had to delete all of the other Cical accounts, except for the one I was using.

Ya, that was the solution I used, I just deleted the CICAL for the one bad one and it is now using the one I want it to.

Isn't 4.3 just the beta for 4.5? I mean there is no official 4.3 public release right?

Regardless that is why you have that option. I wish I could get it too.

I used the same work-around as akosnitzky.

At first, it wasn't so bad: calendar invites were sent from my [email address] address, then suddenly* I noticed that they were being sent from another address, for which each meeting invite had a big red X. I could resend it by changing the from-address at that point, but it meant always having to do that after a failed send from an address which didn't work. Then, seemingly as suddenly, it was sending from another address again; this time it was working except it wasn't the address I wished to send invites from.

*it wasn't so sudden, but it took the third one to figure out the pattern. Each time I added a new address to BIS, it became the default. I ended up deleting the CICAL service books from every address except the one I wanted calendar invites from, and it worked. I am not sure what will happen if I resend calendar books from the BIS website (will it change the default?) but I know what to do about it now.

Ya deleting the CICAL works for me, for now. but what if I want to send a personal meeting request rather than a business one? (as I semi-regularily do) Then I will have to resend all my service books and delete the other ones except my main personal account and then send my meeting request, and then resend my service books again and then redelete everything except my main work account.

This is really rediculous for a device that is mainly geared at businesses. (On WM you simply select options>Send meeting requests via>and then pick which Email to always send them from).

Oh well since 8300 and newer devices seem to have this issue resolved I guess when I get my next BB I won't need to worry about it.

Oh, I was on WAP before and couldn't see your device. You don't have a 8100 that is why you have that option.

Ya, I know. As I said I was on WAP and so didn't see that you don't have a 8100.

For the 8100 there were betaing 4.3 and decided to skip 4.3 and go right to 4.5.

I just upgraded my 8100 to 4.5 (v4.5.0.18) and they have completely solved this issue.

You can now set your default in options, and on every appt you can change the "Send Using" if you need to.

4.5 is SOOO much better. So much.
