Evolution and Google Apps: account assistant points Calendar and Contacts to Gmail instead of company account

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

When adding an IMAP mail account for a Google Apps account (for example <email address hidden>) the assistant creates Contact and Calendar account for <email address hidden> instead of keeping the domain name.
Of course, that doesn't work as gmail.com and example.com are different namespaces for accounts.
The wrong account name is shown in the status bar.

I don't know about Mail, but it doesn't work either (Mail on IMAP doesn't show in the status bar which account name it uses).

So far I've only been able to access my Google Apps account Contacts: I had to change the account name in the properties.

Calendar fails, even if I changed the account name to add the domain name.
Mail fails. I can't find where the account name is visiblle and can be edited.

Sorry, Calendar works once the account name is fixed.
