    If you supplied your email address when joining. Which you did any member can open your v card and use your email address within.
    If you don't want members to be able to contact you via your email address.
    Then edit your details!

    As Grizzly says, do some editing...

    In your User Control Panel
    Go to Settings & Options
    Click on Edit Options
    Uncheck the box under Login & Privacy where it says about others downloading your V-Card.
