I thought I was already one thread said Yes, but the answer was not among the above(although I read it diagonally).
The problem is that people make mistakes, sometimes inserting your address is incorrect. Yes, auto-completion is not everywhere and not always works(corny due to the fact that the name of the input, otherwise), do not have your computer, the person chooses not to remember such data etc.
Higher people say that it does not matter if the user makes a mistake. However, these people, apparently, not so often recorded or simply not been in a problem situation.
And the problem can be as simple as two fingers and called: "sorry, this username is already taken".
Yes! Most services offer at registration to enter a username, nickname or other unique information. If you enter the wrong email address and correct unique information that is no longer required to register under your username, putting your wallet, using your account address on lastfm or Habra etc.

The biggest problem when working with a minimalist services, where there is no need to register, but where you must specify the mail after all the action, so they are not misplaced or to alert. Enter the wrong soap down the drain.

It's simple. Tell the developer. In General, the customer comes and says:
— Here is the registration form fields, such mail twice.
— Why twice mail? Don't you hate it?
— No. You don't understand. It is a standard. Everyone does it, we are worse, that is.
— What is the standard? Who?
— At all! All sites need to enter twice. You do not understand that, whether in the Internet? We pay you for what?!
— Okay, let it be twice.
\r
And so it appears two times mail, required confirmation e-mail, spread captcha and "get those long dashes".

Is that the user doesn't mistype and wrote the correct mail, on which you will receive confirmation of registration. In fact this is nonsense, as is almost always the mail appears in the drop-down list by means of the browser.

Usually mail is sent an email with a confirmation link, so if you input the incorrect address still nothing happens.
And if we follow this logic, confirming the duplication — then we must do all the data to ask twice to enter :) — name, birth date and so on. In short, it is not necessary to do so.

Profit for reducing costs on technical support.

Once upon a time screens were pale, and the keyboard is small and users missed the buttons, and to enter data into the wrong field, and that would be sure to mail the user had to add two or more fields for entering email. True, he heard told me.

I see no reason, in General, duplication of fields. He did not do and others are always discouraged.
