Hi, I did do a search for this, but found nothing directly addressing the issue.
Edit Profile > Email Tab
I've set all three radio buttons to "no". However, I'm still able to receive emails from members emailing me directly. (I'm trying to disable it because they're posting follow up questions directly in the emails rather than continuing it in the original
thread). Am I understanding the purpose of the Email tab incorrectly? Is there a way to prevent others from emailing me?

Try to remove public email.

I know It can be big trouble. What you can do is change the Email ID(try with both public and private) in the Same Tab to some different Mail so that Site Mails wont bother you....

I also sometimes receive e-mails from members directly. Lately I ignored them.

Fair enough, so the Email tab does have an esoteric purpose which we're not aware of. I'll continue ignoring it then. (No public email address was specified, but never mind that for now)

Sometimes I do reply but then not by email, as not to expose it, but I use pm instead. You can take the username from the email and put it in the address bar like this:
