moderated Re: Hide Email Addresses In Archives fails to mask email addresses in Display Names #bug
Hi J,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I did a little test - configured an email account and put the email address also into the „name“ field (in Apple mail on iPad actually). Then I sent a message to Groups.io to a group that accepts messages from non members.
Then the message appeared in Groups.io with the name part showing the email address, as I had set up the account. The part inside the < > (the proper email address) only showed the part before the @ sign)
So anyone configuring their account with the email address used both as the name and as the address would show their email address in the online version of Groups.io.
My opinion is that that‘s their own fault - the „name“ part of an email configuration should have the real name, or a nickname if you don‘t want to show your name to the public. But if you give away your email address by putting it into the name field then a system like groups.io can‘t correct that ( and maybe shouldn‘t).
