When I create issues and assign them to others, the notification email that JIRA sends out says that the assignee was the one who created the issue. For example, I create an issue and, while still in the issue creation screen, I assign the issue to Bob. The notification that JIRA sends to Bob and to me says that Bob created the issue.
I cannot figure out why this is happening.
I think i know why. Some email client cache emails with name. If you check the email header it will most likely say "Bob blablasson <jira@yourserver>" but your email client might forever remember Jira@yourserver associated with Bob since he was the first to have a notifications sent. Seen the same issue with iphone's native mail client, and have a lot of users complaining about it. I asked the same question as you but for some reason Atlassian deleted it. Google cache however still holds a copy:
