Is this email you receive directly from the list, or are you accessing it via Nabble? I have noticed that Nabble mangles threads badly--posts made by other people routinely show up under my name on their site. But these same posts are correctly attributed on both the forum and in the WineHQ archives.

Yes, they do. If they didn't, the original poster in this thread would not be having the problem he had.  The forum gives registered users the choice of whether or not to show their email address in their profile. People who don't want to give out their email address to random strangers--i.e., sensible people--check "no." If you look at my profile, you won't see my email address, either.
