The feature was very controversial when first announced, as Gmail users were not thrilled with the prospect of people being able to email them without actually being given the email address. It’s an even bigger deal for businesses, which is why Google is allowing admins to turn the feature off. In fact, Google promises that the feature will be off by default, which should come as music to the ears of any business that uses Google as its email service.

For page admins, controlling the feature is done via Google Apps, Gmail Settings, and then End User Settings. If the feature is on, the person emailing cannot see your email address unless you reply, nor can you see theirs.

    My option was defaulted to "No one" when I first checked this setting. I'm assuming it's because all my options for email are unchecked on G+. I did that when I first set up the account because I figured being notified in the app or the site was enough for me... no need for an email when I'm always checking the site or app anyway
