The following is set to Yes:

*obscure_addresses* (privacy): Show member addresses so they're not
directly recognizable as email addresses?

Setting this option causes member email addresses to be transformed when
they are presented on list web pages (both in text and as links), so
they're not trivially recognizable as email addresses. The intention is to
prevent the addresses from being snarfed up by automated web scanners for
use by spammers.
