Also, make sure you set "Hide Email Addresses". Otherwise normal users might be able to see the addresses too.

ok, thanks.. i tested that and couldn't see the emails so i thought the "see email" was for people with higher permissions than reg. users..

so tried "Users send e-mail via board" set to No and with either hide and not hide email - glob. mod still can't see email under the ban by emaiI

edit - "Users send e-mail via board" set to "Disabled", not "No"

It depends on what the user has set in their UCP.
If they have set that other users can send them Email, then their Email address will show, unless you have that "Hide Email" set in the ACP Email Settings. Then the only ones to see the Emails will be the ones with the Mass Email permission

So, for a moderator to be able to ban an email, I need to create a new admin group with an admin role that enables "manage users". And then my moderators need to be a member of both the moderators group, and the admin group? It's not possible to allow this using just a single moderator group?

No. You do not need a new group. Just give your Moderators group that one Admin permission.

Thanks. I couldn't see how to apply admin permissions to the group, but found it at last.

For others reference, go to ACP > Permisions > Group Permissions > Select Global Moderators > Submit > Select Admin Permissions > Go > Edit the permission, or assign a role.

Nuts, it doesn't appear to be the "Can manager user" setting alone that determines if the email address field will be prepopulated.

That didn't work either. I have both "Can send mass e-mail" and "Can manage users" set to yes. Unless the permissions are not properly transferring when I choose to "test" the users permission.

You cannot test Admin permissions that way. You would have to login as the user to see what they see.
