Symptoms

Email Address on an autocreated Purchase Order (PO) was defaulted from the Supplier Site, not the Contact as expected.  For example:

1) setup
Supplier = Advantage Corp
site = ADVANTAGE - US
email address = nobody2@localhost.com

contact :  Adams, Alan
email address =  nobody3@localhost.com

2) go to autocreate form
query out req
Click Automatic
enter Supplier = Advantage Corp, site = ADVANTAGE - US
click Create
PO number is created
on the PO form
Enter Contact = Adams, Alan
Email address shows nobody2@localhost.com
==>
it is from supplier site

3) go to PO entry form ==> create a new po
Supplier = Advantage Corp
site = ADVANTAGE - US
Contact = Adams, Alan
save PO
click Approve
Email address =  nobody3@localhost.com
==>
it is from Contact

On the other hand, autocreated POs from the Buyer Work Center (BWC) are working fine.
