I was very unpleasantly surprised when I hovered my mouses over the email (envelope) icon to the left of one of my posts to see my email address in the "send mail to" at the bottom of the screen.  I went to my profile and indeed the subject checkbox was checked as I was sure I would have left it.  So I changed my email address to a non-existent one.

I started receiving spam not caught by Google's filter a few days ago at my real address.  I'm not sure this Forum is to blame, but now I have my suspicions.

You're the only one who can see that envelope. It's hidden from other users.

I saw the envelope and the associated email address for another user.  I guess that means that user had the subject box unchecked?

I was thinking I'd hate to miss out on thread notifications, so I'm glad it's not really a problem.
