    I am using 1.2b, and was wondering how I get the comment authors' e-mail addresses to show up when an e-mail is sent to me when they comment.
    e.g. - Joe comes to my site, and comments. He enters his e-mail address, but it is not displayed on the site - however, when that e-mail is sent to me, the from box is empty, so when I reply - there is no address in the to: box.
    Under my comments section, WP says:
    Line and paragraph breaks automatic, e-mail address never displayed, HTML allowed...
    So the e-mail address that the comment author leaves is left out in the "Reply-to:" or simply "From:" part of the e-mail.
    It's simply blank, and only started doing that with v1.2b.
    Perhaps it is a bug of some sort, or a feature I can disable?
    Thoughts?

    Yes, I've tried it myself.
    Here is a screenshot of what I mean:

    I don't know what could cause this.

    I have the same problem, if I may call it that. I posted the email I get in the post below:
    http://wordpress.org/support/3/4845#post-5
    The From and Reply-to fields are blank. (From actually has a '-' in it)

    Vohiyaar, the original post was about a problem in 1.2beta, and this is in the beta discussion thread :) I was confused for a second ;)
