How did a user reach my private email?


In Geostationary Orbit
Today I received a Software support question to my private email when I am not even a software tech volunteer here. His email (by the long headers) came straight from him to me. He seems legit but I am wondering how he used my email address when I don't publish it in this site or in my CP settings (only private settings). So how did a new person come to this site and get my email to email directly?
