Use of partner function && and $1 in PO output determination


I have setup a message type for sending PO's to vendor by email.

I use medium '5 - external send' in the output message record.

During PO output, the system takes the email address of the PO wich is defaulted from vendor master record.

Now our end users want to send the PO's first to their email address instead of directly to the vendor.

I thougth to achieve this via partner function && or $1 (created by). I thougth the system will take the email address of the userID that created the PO and send the PO to him.

But unfortunately it does not work. When I specify the partner function, system complains that the partner does not exist and no email is generated.

Can somebody help me ?

Thanks a lot !!
