Cannot reuse previously deleted email address

But I didn't think we were talking about being to reuse an address multiple times - just simply changing the system so that if an admin or reseller creates a client, the code only checks against accounts that are still active and haven't been deleted, to determine if the account can be created or not. At the moment, it checks if there was ever an account with that email address, whereas I think it would work better - certainly for me, and apparently for the OP - if it checks against only non-deleted accounts. Then, of course, if you create the fresh account, and someone later tries to use the same address, this would be forbidden as there would be an active account using that address.


Now that is a good concept. Zadmin, at least, should be able to override it. I don't think that would be too hard to do.
But I'm not sure if there would be a trickle down affect.
Have it popup a warning saying it has already been used for a verification of reuse.
For testing, I would just add a simple:

if user=zadmin then skip the check

and see what happens.
