I tried looking up a member by e-mail but got no results. There's only me (the admin) and one test registered user, and both use one of my domain accounts.
What first got me to this issue was, my neighbor tried signing up using a hotmail account and got an error message saying something like "e-mail not reconized"
I thought maybe it was a Hotmail issue. Then I remembered that I also used my hotmail account to test register before and it worked for me. So I tried to sign up using my own Hotmail account again to test this. That's when I got the error "E-mail already used..."
There is only 2 accounts, and neither use a hotmail address! I deleted my hotmail user from my ACP.
And another thing that's odd is, when I first installed phpBB, it asked for an e-mail address. So I put forum@MYDOMAIN.com
, thinking....later I'll go back and add that account to my domain account because it didn't yet exist (and still doesn't). But later I forgot to do this. Yet when I registeres myself to test, I recieve e-mail from that address! Weird!
I looked in all the php files looking for default email settings and couldn't find anything.
Oh, and I checked in the ACP you can change settings to allow multiple uses of the same Email Address. It's checked NO.
