I am posting this discussion because i am amazed at the fact that I cannot find an email client that is able to appropriately handle calendar invitations to/from myself for multiple email addresses and associated calendars.
With Outlook, my issue is that Outlook views my Exchange account as the default calendar account, so that when I accept an appointment to any other non-Exchange account (eg IMAP), the person who sent the invitation gets an 'accept' email from my exchange email address, and not from the email address to which he/she sent the invitation. This looks very unprofessional.
Thunderbird works better and allows for calendars to be matched to email addresses, but has a bug with accepting calendar invites that still has not been resolved: https://bugs.horde.org/ticket/13664
Is anyone aware of an email client for Windows that is able to appropriately handle multiple email accounts (exchange, imap, etc) and associated calendars (exchange, caldav, etc)?

to anyone with this same problem, i found a workaround for accepting invites:
To press "edit the response before accepting" in the calendar invite. When i do this, I am able to change the sender from my Exchange account to the correct IMAP account, and then the invite comes from the correct address. You can then keep all your calendar appointments in the default calendar, or you can drag them manually in the calendar overview to other local calendars, as you wish.
Unfortunately, this only solves 1 part of the problem. The other part is that when initiating a meeting myself, when i do that from another email address than the default exchange one, it sends the email from the default exchange email accounts (and adds "via <the correct account>". Again, this looks really unprofessional. The only way to solve it seems to be to create a local calendar for each IMAP email address like @Diane Poremsky suggested, but i have not been able to succeed so far in doing so except for 1 IMAP account, out of 5.

@IndyChabbra hmmmm i don't know, is there some other way to identify the relevant settings for your Siteground email? You could always email them to ask, i'm sure they can look it up
