I'm using 2.0 on my forum, and was wondering is their any way to set things to 2 users can use the same e-mail account?  I have a husband and wife that use just one account.

Thanks

By default its not possible as with smf, the email address can be used to login with (instead of member name)
and therefore must be unique.

Although I do recall someone posting edits to undo some of the blocks on this. (however it generally wouldn't be recommended).

IF the user is using gmail account, they can cheat by adding a . in the email eg mail sent to
your.name@gmail.com
goes to the same address as
y.o.u.r.n.a.m.e@gmail.com or yourname@gmail.com
