I dont think you quite got what i was stating, the functions dont return
the email value in the array for use at all, not even thru the back end!
So you cant see the current email, so you cant link to it or display it
if the user wishes to which you have always been able to at least pull
the email back from the functions get_currentuserinfo() and such.
Like i say even the WP backend does not pull it back, the feild
user_email is within the $userdata array but it is blank.
This has only ouccured since i updated the WP2 site 2.01
