comment What is the rationale behind entering email twice for registration?
-1. It's one the simplest forms of catching email address typos. Much simpler than MX lookup or SMTP mailbox check or even a regex that catches common misspellings. Having worked with high volume systems this happens all the time, especially in Australia(I'm sure other countries too) where people type @gmail.com.au and @hotmail.com.au because of muscle memory of typing .au after .com.
