If you selected "Allow vCard Download", then your e-mail address will not be private but I see you didn't check it so it would remain private.

I also see you've chosen not to accept e-mails from other members. But if you choose to accept e-mails then your e-mail address will be revealed to the sender in the header. Also, if you choose to e-mail another member who accepts e-mails then your e-mail address will be revealed to them in the header of the e-mail they receive. :)

Perhaps you're talking about a different technique for sending emails, but if you use the email function on the forum (such as by clicking "Send a message via email to USER") you don't see the email or by extension the header of that email. They get your email address, but unless they actually send you an email reply you don't get theirs.
