The importance of having a correct email for new and legacy account

Some users use temporary email addresses to create accounts. Also old accounts do not have an email address set. Entering an email for old accounts is optional, but we still recommend set up an email. If for some reason your address in the account settings panel is not available, it will be impossible to recover your account

Registration limits

One of the goals of adding email verification is to reduce the number and improve the quality of registrations. Some users abuse too simple registration and create hundreds of accounts in order to poison in private messages other people with whom they quarreled in group chats. Blocking them in messenger settings is problematic when a new account instead of blocked can be created too easily.
