Subject [allura:tickets] #7717 Better existing email addr handling

** [tickets:#7717] Better existing email addr handling**

**Status:** open
**Milestone:** forge-oct-17
**Created:** Tue Sep 23, 2014 08:38 PM UTC by Dave Brondsema

When adding an email address to an account, we check to see if someone else has already claimed
that address, and show error "Email address already claimed".  This can be a form of email
address enumeration (finding out if someone else's email is in the system).

We should avoid that, and have the result on the page be the same whether the email is already
claimed or not.  The email that we send out to the address can be different (since only the
real owner will get it).  The email can say something like "You tried to add EMAIL to your
SITE_NAME account, but it is already claimed by your USERNAME account.  You should use that
account instead, or remove that address from that account.  If this was not you who attempted
this, you can safely ignore this email".  

We should also check to see if a claimed address belongs to a disabled user or not.
