Cannot reuse previously deleted email address

If you have a customer who leaves (and you close/delete their account) and then comes back, you want to be able to create them a new account. Can't see how this would prevent spam - am I missing something?


Well, because it was being designed for free hosting, so when people signup for free accounts it's becomes a security measure. If a spammer can get away using the same email address over and over it's 100x easier to create fake accounts.

If a client drops your hosting, 99% of the time they do not return.

The other 1% of that being the very few who may return 'someday' if they even bother with hosting again let alone choosing the same provider. This is the reason why I created the admin module Deleted Records Manager and for being able to deleted all the domains, accounts, etc. that build up from testing.

I wasn't part of the coding team originally (but was on staff for everything else) Bobby decided that's what he was going to do and did it.
