Auto fill attribute from another entity

When I click on an item ‘Send Message’ in the navigation menu, I want to create an object of entity ‘Message’ with attributes Email, Subject, Description.   I want the Email attribute value to be auto filled from another entity ‘User’ which also has an attribute Email.  How can I auto fill the Email attribute from another entity?
