How to display e-mail-addresses for editorial board members?

Is it possible to disable the display of e-mail-addresses for editorial board members altogether? We'd prefer to have all contact channeled through two editors-in-chief, and some of our older board members don't even have e-mail.

As e-mail-addresses are obligatory for all users (for good reasons), we had to enter dummy addresses for the editors who don't have any, but it may be confusing for our site visitors to see links to e-mail-addresses which then turn out to be non-functional (even when we remove the UNIQUE index from the e-mail-field and enter one of our editors-in-chief's address for all board members).

Hi Kellner,

The best way to do this is to edit templates/about/editorialTeamBio.tpl and change the line reading:
Code: Select all
        <i>{$user->getFullName()|escape}</i> {icon name="mail" url=$address}<br />
Code: Select all
        <i>{$user->getFullName()|escape}</i><br />
