Initially found by @oksankaa. She didn't have an account, so I created issues on her behalf.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In 10717:

Emails: in the settings-verify-email-change email, include the user/recipient's email address in the body text.

This will help explain to users what's been happening and hopefully help keep people aware of accidental changes or hack attempts.
Emails will have to be reinstalled via the repair tool for sites to see this change.

Fixes #7034

Note: we'll need to try to include a line somewhere on the 2.6 release notes/welcome screen explaining that if people want this improvement on their site, that they'll need to go into the repair tools and reinstall the emails.
