Under Contact Information in your Account Settings you can specify whether just to send messages to Darkness, to mail, or to both.
For the Lost Password feature, the new password will be sent to whatever e-mail address you have set in your Account Settings. This is because if you cannot log in and need to have a new password generated, there is no way for you to receive it in game since you can't access your in-game messages without logging in.

I don't know which you mean as my avatar and sig switch to different images each time you refresh, but generally from all sorts of places. I didn't make them myself, only re-colored, cropped, and resized.
