I don't see how. IE does not have access to your e-mail address.
I look through my web server logs periodically, and I have never
seen a request string that contains the user's e-mail address.
More likely, your reverse DNS record has some information that
can be used to contact you by e-mail. For example, a previous
ISP that I used assigned me a reverse DNS record that contained
my username! Not. Good. At. All.
