Heh, ok so my authentication code tries to filter a non existent email 
address field from the response. Maybe I thought it would be available 
sometime when I wrote that. Thanks for clearing that.

As a consequence I should change the forum code so it displays a warning 
when a user tries to email without a defined reply address.
