Thanks for the help so far guys!

How can I make the user preference "Hide my email address from other users" ON by default?

I could not find a setting for that.  I'm really surprised that it is not ON by default and that is not an option in the AdminCP.   I consider that a security problem.

Thanks for the response, but I don't think that's what I was getting at.

When a user first registers for the forum, the option Hide My Email Address From Other Users is OFF by default.

I want to make it so that when a user first registers their email address is is automatically hidden from other users unless they turn it ON.

Does that make sense?
Yes it makes sense but I don't know how to do that, sorry.
