1. Edit/configure:    

Allow duplicate email addresses    

Check if required.

Note: whilst there are some situations where there is a requirement to allow multiple users with the same email, it is not recommended. Allowing duplicate email addresses can lead to users who have forgotten their password creating new accounts. This leads to multiple accounts with different data such as form submissions and event attendance being recorded against the different accounts.

If the Membership module is in use, select whether the user must opt in or out of lists of members.
