Hi all:

I just updated to 6.5 from 6.3.1. Eveything appears fine. BUT someone registered today. For some reason they registered 8 minutes later again with a different login name BUT the same email address. I do have my controls set to NOT allow this.

Any ideas?

Have you tried testing this yourself by creating a new account, then another with the same email address? Sometimes people put special characters in a field when they are typing, such as a space, that may not be visible when you simply compare the two email fields.

If I had to guess, they probably didn't get their registration email from the first registration because the email address has a space or special/hidden character in it, so they registered again, getting it right the 2nd time.
