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:
I've just been through this and it turns out that I had accidentally set one of the team with the "Administrator" permission in groups and it looks like this prevents that user from being the sender in any email correspondence (it kept defaulting to my name because I was the project owner). I deleted the Administrator group out of his profile and added him to Jira-administrators and hey presto it started working.
