CORRECTION - Getting Member email Addresses

You will notice an improvement in the Member Directory with the new Release 2.19n.  You will get the same telephone and email information you got before, but in addition you will also have the ability to email to a fellow member directly from that site which could make it more convenient for you.

When this new release was first installed about a month ago the default option did not show the email directly.  However, with the option I am using now, you will see the email address like before and with the same security as before.  You can only view one email at a time and you must click on the "email" icon to view email address.

Sorry for some confusion that arose when this Release 2.19n first came out but we should be OK now and better than before.

Tom Bush, Webmaster
