Its Impossible to have two PSN accounts with the same EMAIL.

 

One of the accounts WILL have a spellling mistake.

Example.. 

Joeblogs@ymail.com (nomadhell)

Joebloogs@ymail.com  (warbound99) (this account had the wrong Email used.)  

 

PSN will not allow two PSN IDs to be created using the same email.

Thats why you only can look up the one account... as there is only one email address used is for that single account..

Even sub accounts need their own email.. but passwords for sub accounts are set on the master account and don't need the recovery system as you just set a new account password from the master account...

Well I never heard of this ever.

Maybe you're writing down the wrong email?

I've never heard of sony letting people use the same email.

No. You can't. Either you're using the same PSN Id or there is a subtle difference in the e-mail address. It's impossible to have 2 PSN IDs with one e-mail address.

well, tell this to sony, because me and some other people have this. But i'm too lazy to show you several screenshots proving this. If you pay me 25$, i will take 5 minutes of my times making photos of my screens where you can see one **bleep** e-mail and two **bleep** psn names, each one for every console. It is probably a glitch, but it happened to many people including me.

It's not possible, the e-mail address is the user name that is used to sign in, you can't have 1 e-mail for 2 accounts, it just wouldn't work, the e-mail address is connected to the PSN name. That's like saying you have 2 passwords on one account, it just won't work, when you enter your e-mail it check to see if the password you enter matches that e-mail and account, you can't have two, if you try it will tell you that the e-mail is already being used.
