what do you mean by a "linux email address" there is no such thing, just like there is no such thing as a "windows email address"... can you expalain what you actually mean?

additionally please use more insightful thread titles in future

there's still no such thing as a "Linux address". if you have a hotmail account or some such that you've used under windows, then it'll work just fine on Linux too. what sort of emails are you talking about? you could have had ones from root@localhost potentially, but that's just your internal system notifying itself about things. if that's the case we can look further in that direction.
