a user (A) recently upgraded from iphone 4s to iphone6. A has 2 emails and was the default email a/c he sent emails. his recipents will commend they can also see his email . this also happens from the sms he sent out. not sure if this is some known settings to correct.
according to A, those recipents that commented seeing the email are people who don't know about this 2nd email address he had.

This is like looking for a needle in a hay stack - I would first verify that he did not register both e-mail addresses with iMessage.

Look in Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > Apple ID: - below will be other e-mail addresses and mobile number.


Also make sure that they are not BCCing the other e-mail address when sending e-mails.

Hope this puts you on the right direction.

Thank you.
