I have to enter my e-mail address very often, I guess we all do. I always type it right. And I don't even copy-paste(imagine the excise:) ) Those twin entry fields have never helped me. Maybe they could help, once in one hundred times, but I guess we're back to the 'Are you sure you want to save this file' discussion :)
..There must be other ways to implement this. I find the auto-complete feature very helpful. If I'm not mistaking, the browser 'remembers' sets of entries for textboxes with the same name, nomather the website. So familiar names for those textboxes could help. Or any other way of ensuring auto-conplete works..

I saw that some have said that the double email entry process (to minimize
email errors) is stupid and should stop since copying and pasting between
fields can pass the error to the second field. The problem is that wheover
implemented the solution that way has caused it to be useless- the correct
way to implement this is to not allow pasting into the the fields and force
users to enter it manually twice.
