« on: April 18, 2015, 11:06:45 PM »
Is there a problem with it? Is it dangerous?
I just realized it today

We can't tell you as we can't see what it is to say one way or another.

Only you can enter emails into your my.avast.com account, so is this an old email that you have used in the past ?

Ordinarily we would ask what the email address is and why you think it dangerous ?
However publishing emails in publicly available web sites could result in spam, you could try and obfuscate it.

As I have said without more information we really can't say.

If you can do a screen capture of the Email Management section of the my.avast.com page.

This has just happened to me, and I did get a screen capture of the email in my profile that I have never seen.

Presumably you are talking about the email in your my.avast.com account ?

If so, the email really should be the same as that which you are logged on to the forums with ?
Otherwise you wouldn't be able to logon to the forums ???
