Here is an important message from David Wheeler, a long time Software Engineer and Architect at SugarCRM, about using e-mail fields correctly.

E-mail handling is core to CRM software. Almost everyone we know uses multiple e-mail addresses every single day for both personal or work purposes. So it goes without saying that managing a person’s multiple e-mail addresses correctly is essential in your Sugar customizations and integrations.
