How to Stop Getting Email Notifications From Google+ Users

Google has recently updated Gmail and Google+ that shows your Google+ profile in the Gmail compose box to give better options to Gmail users. Now people can directly email you if you are on Google+ and it has made the whole process much easier. This idea is really good to get to know the people or even mail them even if not added in your contact list or in your circle. Now this does not mean that you will be able to see the Google+ user’s email address, but you can email them without any restrictions. Your email address isn’t visible to a Google+ connection unless you send that person an email, and likewise, that person’s email address isn’t visible to you unless they send you an email.

Note: This feature has not rolled out for everyone, but soon it will be available for all Gmail users.
