The reason Tom's asking is because if you've got the option to receive mail turned off, but are still getting mail, then the chances are good that you were actually, at some point, receiving the mail twice, at two different addresses. If you let him know exactly what address the mail is coming to, then he can track the problem down; otherwise, not.

The reason I am asking is that many people have their email forwarded. It has often been the case that we are sending email to a different address than the address where the person is receiving the email. The address where you are registered is set to not receive email and it does not appear that this address is used by another member id.
