Default Address Content security concern

Hi. My sister just told me about this a couple of days ago.
I have a regular T-mobile BB package (not enterprise activation).
Last week, i sent email using my tmo.blackberry email address.
Apparently, she was somehow able to see all the information I had on her in my address book. The infomation was listed on "note" section inside my sister's address file.

I guess i am trying to find out what information is transmitted when I send email? I thought it was just the email address from the address book, and not the entire information about that person. Fortunately, i had nothing bad to say about her, so it was okay, but it could have been very bad.

I tested by sending a test message to my self from tmo email address to my school email. Nothing but my email showed up.

Did anybody ever had a similar experience?

My sister has a hotmail account. Does that make a difference?

or if you pick email addres right out of the address book, will that cause what might have happened to me? (When I want to send an email to someone, I go to my address book, then find that person's name, then i click and select to send email to that person.)

Finally, as i mentioned previously, is there certain categories of information in an address book sent with an email beside that person's email address?

i asked my sister to forward that email to me.
I will update you once I get that information.

That seems very unlikely unless you accidently attached her vcard to the email.

That's the thing. I am not even sure what I did when I sent her email.
Can you send vCard through email? Is there an option in the menu when you want to send email?

when you choose to forward a message you may have choosen "attach address" instead of just typing your sisters address in the to field
