Not sure what you mean they can see your email address? Where can they see it?

On the Top list...

If people email you from there they see your email addy.

If you mean when members of your toplist use the form to send you a message, they actually can't see your email address.

Yes thats find. But I changed the email address. It is still showing the first one I had. I would just like it the be the one I changed it to.

I get the emails to the new one no worrys.

My question is how do you change what people see.

For anyone who's been following this thread....

The members of your toplist can't see your email address. They can only see their own address. When they send a message to you through the script, the "To" field is hidden. It doesn't show that anywhere.

The "Reply-to" field is the only email address that they can see. That is their own email address that they entered when they added their site to the toplist. In this case, the manager of the top list happened to be logged in to her own member account (site that she added to her own toplist) sending a test message to herself, that is why she could see her own email address.

That doesn't sound like it makes a lot of sense... let me try it this way. If I joined her toplist and used dave@dave.com as the email address for my site, then sent her a message through the admin area, it would say something like:

Email sent
To: (hidden)
Reply-to: dave@dave.com
etc... etc...

In this case, she added her own site to her own toplist, so obviously, her email address was shown in the Reply-to field.
