if I remember right, that "BUTTONS_PANEL" is part of the profile control panel MOD.
if so, then you will have to ask the authors of that MOD how to edit the files. that MOD changes or replaces just about every file in the phpbb.
anyway, if you go to your admin panel and check the box for enabling email via the board, that will remove the email addresses from view by anyone but the admin ( you ). instead of opening your email program, the button will take you to a form to fill out to send email.
