### Asterisk on wrong author

Dear fellow latex users

I am having the most basic of problems with latex. I can't seem to figure out how to remove the asterisk from the last author's name. In turn I need the asterisk on the first author's name. I have attached the latex snippet just so that you have a visual on the problem.

Hi Montaut,

welcome to the forum!

Call `\author` for each author, and use `\email` right after the author that should get it.

`\author{First author}\email[]{author@mail.com}\author{Second author}\author{Last author}`
