just spent 10 mins on control panel …
where on earth are my e mail details ?

Go to your profile

Then click on “[ Edit profile ]”,

Then click on “Edit Account Settings”.

Your email details should then be visible.

Another way is to click on your name near the top right corner of the forum (below the search box) and select: “User control panel”.
Then select the “Profile” tab.
In the left column, click on “Edit account settings”.
