There a millions and millions of customers in this country without an e-mail address. Having to generate bogus e-mail addresses many times per day when entering phone orders from these customers is tiring and lacks elegance. I suggest e-mail field be optional and if nothing is entered, then AC generates a code equal to order number which take the place of the e-mail address for identifying the order in the system. (All who are entering bogus e-mails as we are for non-email customer should realize that "@noemail.com" is an actual e-mail server. The possibility of sharing a customer's information by inadvertently using a valid e-mail address when trying to create a bogus one is not comforting.
