Create New Order -> Create New Customer -> Email field is now required.
Why has this been implemented and why is it not noted on the Release Notes for 2.2.6? How do I make it a non-required field again.
I was told on the magento2 github that this is expected behavior.
My response: It was not required in 2.2.5. I don't understand why the change has not been documented. Please point me to a commit or discussion that explains the reason for this change. Or why this is not a feature you can turn on/off. Not everyone in the world has email addresses or sometimes they prefer not to give it out. Now we have to try and makeup a different dummy address every time because if it matches another email the order will not be created.
The email address has never been a required field even going back to magento1
