Try using this:

 

 Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();

mail.setTemplateId(EmailTemp.Id);

  mail.setSaveAsActivity(true);

 mail.setReplyTo('123@213.com);         

 mail.setSenderDisplayName('Sender');

mail.setWhatId('AssociateId');                   

mail.setTargetObjectId('Contact OR Lead ID');

 Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] { mail });

You need to set the Target Object Id field to set the current record.

Thats what I included in my first post

 

mail.setTargetObjectId('Contact OR Lead ID'); // You need to set this Id with a contact or lead object. Since the user is actually the owner of one of these records, the merge field will pick up the vlaue.

 

mail.setWhatId('Account, Opportunity or any related object Id'); //if you have placed merge fields with opportunity/quote or any other related object owner.
