I fail to see why anyone would SHARE email accounts in this day and age - with all of the free account services out therem even aside from most service providers allowing you to have multiple accounts.

The problem I have is that many of the users of the system are couples who share an email address. I have a workaround for this in that the second member is assigned an email address in my own domain which is then redirected to the original one. However, this is labour-intensive and not 100% reliable. That's why it would be of great benefit to me to be able to have duplicate email addresses inside my forum.All system administration is done within the application and not on the forum. In addition, the only way into the forum is through the application; the standard way into it is blocked. What this means is that, within the forum, email addresses are only used for sending messages between users. They cannot be used for login and password management (including the sending of reminders) is within the front end application.The conclusion of this thread is that, provided you are careful, you can use duplicate email addresses inside a forum. Is this conclusion still valid for version 2.0.7?
Quote-Email notifications sent to same address. This means that if multiple people have registered with the same address, the readers of that email address will see the notifications for all those accounts. Possible security issue. Besides that, PM notification emails would allow everyone to read the PMs of the other members, which would be a loss of privacy.
