Configured "from" address is ignored when sending mail

Issue Summary
No matter which transport method or email service I use, the configured “from” email address never gets used. I’ve tried direct transport, GMail SMTP, and mailersend SMTP.

Since creating this post, I’ve done a bit of sleuthing, and as best I can tell, requestedFromAddress is always defined, so configAddress never gets used in this line of code (even though it’s properly set).

Steps to Reproduce
Configure the “Direct” transport method. Configure a custom “from” email address as described in the docs. Subscribe a new user to the Ghost website in order to trigger the transactional email. Note that the “from” address is the default - not the configured one.
