At a recent event we discovered that the sender also must have email confirmed.
(I was on one side of the room and sent a test from [[special:emailuser]] to
the user sitting next to a new editor. new editor had no email user link on
sidebar of other user's user page)

The fact that the new editor was not emailconfirmed would have been discovered
more easily if there was an email link in the user page sidebar. (the special
page itself does already have an error message about emailconfirmed)

Some docs/etc. may instruct people to click on the link in the sidebar and so
users will be confused if it's not there. (did I go to the sidebar of the
correct page??)
