I have a scenario where I will be creating 2 or more FBA accounts having the same email address.

  1. First place, is this scenario valid? Does SharePoint allow to create accounts with duplicate email addresses?
  2. I was using SharePoint FBA pack earlier and I know that FBA pack will not allow the creation of users with a duplicate email address.
  3. If this is possible, what are its impacts on the SharePoint Sites/Custom applications?

Thank you.

Yes - you can change that in your membership settings in your web.config.
