How to show the user's emails without it opening a box of choices to open it?

How to show the user's emails without it opening a box of choices to open it?
I'd like it to not open the software choice-box, but being able to copy the address, so people can copy/paste it into where they want.

Cheers!

Make a profile field for that but don't make it compulsory (not everyone will appreciate their emailaddress being visible to the public)
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

No it's not an extension. You have "users can contact me via email" set to yes in your user profile on this forum which is set to allow it so a link is provided in your contact drop down under your post profile. All I did was right click, copy link and paste it into a post.

No, it's default feature (but it's subject to permissions settings).

On my forum clicking the send email prompts a box of choices to open it in an email software, not like here.

Under email settings in the ACP you want this
Users send email via board:
Instead of showing the users email address users are able to send emails via the board.
to be set to "yes".
