Hide email address from unregistered users
|Category:||Accounts / authentication|
Currently the "Hide email address" preference allows a user to publish or not publish their email address regardless of the registration status of the user viewing the account/show page.
For public projects, it is desirable to publish one's email address so that users can contact project members to request project membership. However, this leaves the member's email address open to spam.
It would be useful to restrict publishing member email addresses to only users who have bothered to register with the site. This would go a long way to avoiding spam, and allow potential project members to contact existing members.

This is a very good feature request! Indeed, it would be even better if it included custom user fields as well. If you define i.e. a custom user field "cell phone", you most likely wish to allow only users with accounts to see this number - specially when you run Redmine with self-registration disabled.

I second this request. Authenticated users seeing each others email address is fine with our organization because redmine ldap signon and email are tied to one another anyway. But I'd prefer outside users on our public tools could only download distributions and report issues.
