How to access ASP.Net user information from a colelction

Greetings

I have a list box that needs to display a list of users (all, not just logged on). In  the panel on the right hand side I want to display the data (eg email address) related to the current user.

MembershipUserCollection allTheUsers;

     if (!IsPostBack)
        {
             allTheUsers= Membership.GetAllUsers();
            this.UsersListBox.DataSource = allTheUsers;
            this.UsersListBox.DataBind();
        }

My questions:

(1)  Is this the correct way to do it?
(2)  Having bound the collection to the listbox, how do I display only the username?
(3)  How do I get the value of (for example) the EMail field of the currently selected user?
(4)  If I add/delete a user, do I do another GetAllUsers()?  Is this acceptable? Is there a better way?

In advance, thanks!

This can help maybe?
You can easily retrieve the email username or anything from the listbox or from the collection. Refer to the article.

Ok.

What is the proper way to do this. Should I post 4 individual questions?

Figured out (I think) question 3:-

muTheUser = mucAllTheUsers[lbxUsers.SelectedItem.Value];
 txtUser.Text     = muTheUser.UserName;
