Blind email feature is not inserting the senders email address in the 'Sender EmailAddress' merge field for anonymous users.

When an anonymous user attempts to send a blind email to a constituent using the Directory Part the system is not inserting the senders email address even when the merge field 'Sender EmailAddress' is properly added to the template. 
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future release.

As a workaround users are able to populate their email address if they are logged in as an active user. This issue only occurs when the user is anonymous. 

Steps to Duplicate

Prerequisites
1. Edit the Directory part as an Admin user and confirm that the  following Message Fields have been added. 
* "Allow messaging between users" 
* "Allow users whoa re not logged in to send messages" 
2. Make sure the merge field "Sender EmailAddress" is added to the template. 


Steps: 
1. Navigate to a Directory Part without logging in as an active user. 
2. Search for an active user.
3. Click the email button, which appears as a small email icon. 
4. In the pop up window, enter the required fields (First Name, Last Name, From email address). 
5. Note that the email address never populate in the message window. 
6. Enter reCAPTCHA and click send. 
7. Notice that the message you receive does not include the senders email address.
