Is that right???
No when the system sends a PM notification email it takes the form:

the message is sent from firstname.lastname@example.org
and doesn't identify your true name or email address.
There is an option to "send email" rather than send a PM. This will appear to come from the users registerred address, e.g. email@example.com
(but doesn't directly disclose your email to them) obviously if you reply it will. It will include the senders email in the body of the message too.
