Users testing BBDM efforts and CRM Events cannot receive emails and are showing as Opt-out in BBIS Messages report.

Users testing emails through BBDM efforts and CRM Event Invites do not receive emails. When viewing the Messages "not sent" report in BBIS, the users' emails show as Opt-out.  However, if you create a constituent-based listed in BBIS and send a regular Message from BBIS instead of DM/Event Invites, the message is sent and received. 
We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future service pack.
