Importing iCal causes spamming emails
I imported an iCal file for an event that the organizer sent to me. However, it set the organizer as an attendee and it started to silently send email to him, as I'm the organizer and he's the attendee. Moreover, it sent a huuuuge amount of email, because I tried to change hours, and for each change it alerted the organizer.
What could have happened? It seems strange to me that the organizer is set as an attendee, this should not be the default behavior, right? Am I missing something?
EDIT: Sorry, missing details:
- Evolution version:
evolution 3.38.3 (3.38.3-1.fc33)
- OS: Fedora 33, (kernel 5.9.16-200.fc33.x86_64)
- You can find attached the iCal file which caused me problems: Test_iCal_import_event.ics. I anonymized it, and I've inserted a mailinator email instead of the organizer one (so you can see the "spamming emails" here). I tried it, and it can reproduce the issue.
- After analyzing the situation I think the "huge" amount is because the event is composed of three occurrences. Hence, for each event change, it sends three email to the attendee. Thus the "huge" was partially my fault because I did several changes in event hours, multiplied by three, it sent a lot of email (like ~30).
Let me know if you need further informations. And sorry again for the missing details.
EDIT2: I just thought another thing maybe could be useful. This problem is on an ews account. I didn't tried other types of account.
