Make event emails sent from 10.6 iCal Server come from actual user
Authored by: ryanowich on Aug 23, '11 08:52:59AM

I'm on iCal server. And almost everything is working.

Except when I reply to an event invitation in iCal, the .ics created has a line saying:
ATTENDEE;CN="Ryan Grønborg";CUTYPE=INDIVIDUAL;EMAIL="ryan@mycompany.com";PARTSTAT=TENTATIVE:urn:uuid:38BCCE7F-D85C-4C17-872E-5C3CFFFB4838

When the event organizer receives my reply, their system sees it as urn:uuid:38BCCE7F-D85C-4C17-872E-5C3CFFFB4838 has replied.
That causes a confusion because urn:uuid:38BCCE7F-D85C-4C17-872E-5C3CFFFB4838 has not been invited.

The organizers system does not see my email ryan@mycompany.com.
I've tested on Mozillas Lightning calendar with my personal Gmail and also testet on an iCal account not connected to iCal Server.

I'd like to change the generated .ics so that urn:uuid:38BCCE7F-D85C-4C17-872E-5C3CFFFB4838 is replaced with mailto:ryan@mycompany.com

I want the new output to be:
ATTENDEE;CN="Ryan Grønborg";CUTYPE=INDIVIDUAL;EMAIL="ryan@mycompany.com";PARTSTAT=TENTATIVE:mailto:ryan@mycompany.com

Because: That's what iCal puts when it's not on iCal Server. And because it works that way.
If I change that line manually before Apple Mail sends the reply, then organizers is happy and gets my reply.

Question: Does anyone know which python file generates the .ics which is sent as reply to external event organizers?
