A new checkbox "Update exising users based on email match" is now available in module settings for the Extranet module (in "Create user" settings) and in the Shopping cart (when "Create user during checkout" is enabled).
When "Update exising users based on email match" is checked the system now checks if the email already exists. If the email exists in User Mangement, it updates the user profile with the content from the new user creation. If the email doesn't exist it creates a new user.

This means that it is now possible to create a user even if you are already subscribed to a newsletter and possible to subscribe to a newsletter as an existing user.
