How can I fix "Invalid Email Format" for "User Details you wish to associate with your commits"?

Every time I enter my email in the email field for what user details are associated with my git commits, it reports that it is in an invalid format when it is not. Other times, it simply prompts me again when I press okay, but blanks the email field.


My email is in the format "sean.white@[company].com"2017-08-31 08_59_38-SourceTree.png

There seems to be an intermittent bug in that dialog. You shoudl be able to set the same information in Tools/Options/General tab as 'Default user information'

Weird thing is I already have that information entered, but I'm still being prompted.2017-08-31 09_33_18-Options.png

I also face this issue, even if my information is already right in Tool/Options/Genetal tab
