Per discussion in mozilla-webtools, it might be a good idea to do something about administrators locking themselves out of Bugzilla by setting emailregexp to something their own account doesn't match. There are two avenues: 1) allow people in admin group to login regardless of regexp restrictions and 2) don't allow admins to set the emailregexp to something the current account doesn't match. The problem with no 2 is that it makes it harder to do an incompatible change of email address policy (leave out domains for example), because the admin can't change it unless his address matches the new form, and he can't make it match new form if it's not permitted by the old one. The solution is to intermediately use a regexp that allows both forms, of course, but that's a bit painful.

I'm pretty sure we don't now check emailregexp at login time, if we ever did. Gerv
