When I post and in the members list, I can see my email even after I chose not.
In my Profile > Account Related Settings, I checked the box "Hide email address from public?"
So, I thought that my email shouldn't show, but I can see it.
I was wondering if I'm the only one to see it or if anyone else can see it too. Can someone confirm it?

you can see your own email, but it is hidden from us.

Oh! OK.
Thanks for the quick reply. :)

It would reassure me if I couldn't see my email next to my posts when I configure my profile to hide it. But I guess it's the way it's done.

Yep, I was also initially unsure, but then it does make sense, since the user knows his own e-mail address. The inability to see hidden e-mails also applies to moderators, in case you're curious.

I was a bit worried since the spambots might try to harvest some emails while posting around here. I wouldn't mind if the forums regulars could see my email. Much less you and Craig!
