In my account settings, I have checked the box: "Hide email address from public?"

However, in my post, my email address is showing up as a contact method in the sidebar next to my posts. I would prefer it not to be there to avoid spam. Is this a bug?

Your email is hidden.  In your profile, I see

"Email:   hidden"

There is no link to email you in the sidebar next to your post.  That is likely just because your email address isn't hidden from you, so you can see the link to email yourself, if you so choose.

Okay, thanks for the confirmation. I was wondering if that were the case, I then I saw other newbies with an email link and wondered whether a setting had been changed.

I consider that a software defect.  There us no point in showing the email icon on all of your own posts if you have it set to hidden.  What are you going to do, email yourself?  Smiley

I would consider it a software defect as well Veldy.  But that's why I like xenForo - the devs seem to pay attention to even the smallest of bugs and actually do something about it.
