PM sending emails with my email address on?

I have been contacted by another member to say that when I send a PM it also sends an email to them which includes my email address as a reply option...

Is that right???

Got that PM. Unless you're also suzi@houseofpain.xxx, I don't appear to have any emails from you however...

No when the system sends a PM notification email it takes the form:

Poly,

You have received a new private message at RIBnet Forums from whisper. Please click here to log in and read it:

the message is sent from support@rib.net 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. your_friend@domain.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.
