Sender email is wrong

Sender email is wrong was created by Yxos
We just upgraded to CB 2.0.10 and found a difference to the older version.

When a user utilizes the option to write an email to another user, using the form designed for this purpose (/emailuser?), the email arrives at the other user with a comment at the bottom of the email saying that the user should be carefull when replying to the email because that will reveal his real email to the first user, because replying will use the email sender address; which is the real email address of the first user.

This is an excellent way of handling email privacy!
However, on 2.0.10, the email sent to the second user does NOT have the first users email address as sending address. Instead the Joomla site address is used, causing that an eventual reply will probably go to the site webmaster.

Is this a bug in 2.0.10, or is there a setting I have missed?

Please check your CB -> Configuration -> General tab settings:

Emails Sent From parameter.

@Nick: I just found this post after updating my own post here: www.joomlapolis.com/forum/153-professional-member-support/231080-wherehow-to-modify-email-template-sent-from-user-to-user-front-end

I have tested both options for that parameter and in both cases the email address is sent form email specified in Joomla Configuration (site/admin email) - J3.4.3 and CB 2.0.10
I'm curious how did it work for @Yxos - I do believe this is rather a bug - thanks!

It worked fine because there is a difference between email-from and reply-to-email.
