Got a question about my e-mail address. I have/use two different e-mail providers. One I use for everyday purpose, the other I keep private, for friends/family only. I visit another forum on an everyday basis and have my profile,i.e. age, likes, hobbies and such listed. This forum also has my regular e-mail address. I recently received a birthday greeting from the admin./moderator of this forum on my private e-mail address, not the one that I gave them when I registered on the forum that I would have thought the e-mail would have been sent on. My question is, how can they get my other e-mail address? It's not a big issue but cerainly made me curious.

Thanks for any responses.

Please PM me the email you feel you used to register here. I can then see if it matches. There is no way for any staffer to see any private email address and email you unless you input it in the forum database. The birthday email you got is automated from the information in your profile not done manually by a person.
