I keep trying to hide my e-mail address, so that it doesn't appear on my profile page. Yet like a day later, when I check, it's back on. Why does this happen?

Do I have to keep my email there? Or is it only me who can see it?

    Only you can see it. Well, you and TPTB at stackexchange, in case they need to contact you (you might have more than one @addr, so the profile reminds you which one you've given them) Mar 13 '12 at 4:07

Your e-mail address in your profile page is visible only to you (and some SE employees, etc.; check the privacy policy if that matters to you).

You can verify how your profile looks to other normal users by looking at it in a browser where you are not logged in.
