This article describes a scenario where an EDI X12 transmission results in a "Sending partner does not match" error even though they do match.  Further investigation revealed that the Communication tab setup for the trading partner to transmit via FTP or SFTP was not configured to use the default configuration and resulted in the above error.  This may not be the resolution in every case for this error, however the error and solution below described a method that can be used to troubleshoot similar issues.
