There is an image attached to my post (b3161.gif), click it to expand it.

Do you mean the parachutes. Nothing happens.
However, if you mean the little head and shoulders icon, yes I can click that and see your profile.

Now my problem is, my little head and shoulders icon has an envelope by it and if you click it an email page comes up.

I am very worried.

I do not want to have my email on display.

I also did not want to post this publicly but apparantly I have to send 20 messages before I can do this.

I am fed up with the whole thing.  I joined this forum for security and I am now vulnerable.  I do not know how to get rid of the envelope.

The image is in the text of his reply.  Click on the thumbnail image and it enlarges.

We cannot see your email address, just as you cannot see mine.  We all can see our own email address in our profile information, but others see "hidden".

Can you see the small head and shoulders icon at the left side of this post?
Next to it is an envelope for anyone to click on and send me an email.
You do not have an envelope at the side of your little person icon but I do.

Hi Zaffy

The best way to check what the general public can see of yr account is to come to the forum but dont log in, then go search for yrself on the forum - for example, search for this topic we are now on - and then have a good look for yrself at Zaffy.

If something you do not like, then log in and make changes to yr profile - we can help you make those changes.

Edit - that envelope is for internal mail - mailing each other inside this forum - we call PM (personal messages)

Thank you, but nobody else has that envelope with their email address on it.
Can you tell me what an internal email is please?

Everyone else has one, but 'you' can't see their envelope (email address) and they equally can't see yours.

The IM icon is a personal message 'internal communication' between forum members, you can't use that function until you have 20 posts.

Thank you for your patience, but now I am totally confused.
When I click my envelope, in the TO: line it has my email address.
Why would I want to send myself an internal message?

There is no image attached to this post.  Or am I going mad?

What else do you think it would do all it is is a mailto link (hover your mouse over the icon). That is what the mailto link does it creates an email with the email address in the To address of the email in the mailto link.

You don't want to send your self an email, who does, but no one else can send you an email either as for them the icon isn't there. The only others who can see it are the moderators, if they need to contact you for any reason, then they need access to that icon so it is displayed.

Because 'you' have access to your own profile, then you too can see it.

Thank you, I am exhausted and I have probably exhausted your patience too.  I shall accept all advise and not worry and go to bed.  Goodnight.

I can't tell if you are going mad, as I can't see through your eyes, but it is there. Here is a direct link to it, http://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=58713.0;attach=46832;image.
