Email accounts

Is the recommendation to "add" fresh email accounts to the project, or "replace" the current email accounts in the project data with fresh new email accounts?

I am hesitant to replace/remove email accounts in case I want to remove links, or prevent a submitted link becoming a verified link because the email address has been removed.

What is "best practice" for GSA SER emails

    removing email accounts from the project settings is only a problem for accounts who still need verification by email. IF you e.g. uncheck them in the list and keep them there for like a day, you can remove them afterwards without problems.

    Sven, might the time to keep unchecked emails be longer than a day if I run a project, but then do not run that same project the next day, therefore not giving SER the opportunity to verify it?

    @ClintN, I had kept emails in my catchalls for waaaaaaaay too long and the box was getting full. Now I have my email set to delete old emails after a few days.

    Whether you're adding OR replacing e-mails (and I guess there are times you may do either??), you should definitely do it as Sven described so you don't lose any potential account activation e-mails, which was your initial concern.
