Allow for multiple useraccounts with same email address
I am both administrator and worker on several projects. For this I use different user accounts. However, I cannot set the email addresses equal (Redmine does not allow that). Can that be changed? Fine to have a warning if you register as a user with an already used email account, but leave it up to the user to accept that or not. That would solve my problem.

Assuming your email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org, maybe you could try to use
email@example.com for your admin account. Many email providers / MTA accept the
+ as an easy convention to tag your address, and route every mail to the same final box.
Anyway, as Felix said, I think making email addresses not unique would be a bad idea, so I close this issue. Anyway, I'd be curious to have your feedback about this.

I think that allowing duplicate mail address is a good feature, I need it to assign "firstname.lastname@example.org" to all support team, and when the developer team updates a issue the notification goes to a common mailbox not only to the reporter.
