I had something similar in that the formatting got screwed up and my contact info was obscured. I just politely email them again, saying that the issue was brought to my attention and I want to ensure that they have all my necessary contact info. I then resent all documents in PDF form, as to ensure proper formatting. Didn't hurt me at all, and got multiple interviews so far out of that batch.

Just type up a correct one, note the mistake to them, but relate it back to how you want to make sure they have your contact info because you are excited to get in touch etc. Don't just leave it because, if thats the email they use, you may never get any communication from them, and you will have no clue what the reason was. Better safe than sorry.
