    My friend has a MM account, so do I. We both use the Mail app and have other emails accounts setup too (hotmail/yahoo/MM/Etc)

    When i send him a calendar invitation, it doesn't come from my MM account, it comes from another.

    How can i make it come from my MM account? Therefore, attendee's are not showing up correctly.

    Thanks!

    from memory, and I haven't tested this recently, in mail preferences, set the "mail is always sent from" property to be your MM account.
    Yes, I agree it's not ideal, but I seem to remember someone else suggesting it as a fix.

    let me (and others!) know if this works.

    Got the default account sorted
    * Select Mail | Preferences... from the menu.
    * Go to the Composing category.
    * Select the desired account under Send new messages from: (or Send new mail from:) (under Addressing:).
    * Close the preferences window.

    But the invitations in calendar don't work - my friend has accepted but it doesn't show in my calendar.

    Can anyone confirm this works/doesn't?

    One step at a time, though! Are the invitations coming from the correct account now?
