Select Mail.app sender for iCal invitations and replies
Authored by: bengber on Jan 12, '10 12:41:40PM

To set the mail account used, go to your Address book entry ("Me") and delete all email addresses except the one you want. Then save. Then add the other ones back.

This will set the correct SMTP server and correct CN in the .ics file. Of course, you still can't choose on a case by case basis, but this will at least get you using a reasonable default address.

(BTW -- I'd argue the "correct" solution is not to prompt each time but to allow different defaults for different calendars.)

Actually, I had occasion to test it today for a client, and it worked out great. We ended up not using it so I don't know if there were any bugs created by the change in the long term.

For the record, the easiest way to do it is pretty much as Rob described. I zipped an archive of iCal, opened up the package, opened Resources, and then simply copied the contents of Resources inside the package found in the .tar file into the existing iCal resources folder. Definitely important to make that zipped backup, or some other type of backup, first!

Why did you not choose to implement this solution? What did you do instead?
