Hmm can you repro this @techapj?

Yes, I was able to repro this. I made two fixes:

  • change button will be disabled when the email is duplicate (i.e. same as user’s current email).

  • In case the new email user provided is already in use by another user than instead of serving 500 (Internal Server Error), 422 error will be served with proper error message.
