Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I want to receive notifications but not list my email on my profile.

I'm searching and looking through meta and the SE site, but I haven't found a clear answer to my question. Thanks in advance.

PS: Another possible related question, is my email hidden on my profile?

Yes your email address is hidden to normal users – Benny Apr 13 '12 at 23:45

Yep, your email address is hidden; the rest of the data is public except your real name and DOB(Your DOB is exposed as your age, though)

That email is the one used to send you notifications. It's usually stolen from the OpenID provider.

@AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA: Whoops, thanks. – Manishearth Apr 14 '12 at 0:58
The DOB is exposed as Age on the profile so technically it isn't completely hidden. Nit-picking I know but to be technical. – M.Babcock Apr 14 '12 at 1:32
Thank you very much – Karolinger Apr 16 '12 at 0:44
