Comment (by imath):

 Hi @boonebgorges & @dcavins sorry for this late reply. In Réception the
 need was to build an email verification mechanism to avoid people to spam
 members. The visitor needs to ask for an email verification before being
 able to contact the member. The admin is comparing hash according to a
 field input yes. I believe in the invitation case we could build a a
 mechanism hashing the email before checking into the db table if the
 invited user don’t want to receive invites. Into the invitation email, we
 could include a link to prevent new invitations using the email hash into
 the link. The admin part could use an input / hash / search hash mechanism
 to delete it or add it.

 Due to user privacy concerns I think it’s an important point to check with
 a law specialist to avoid us to make a mistake. I wonder how share by
 email services are working : do they store emails ? Is a {{{mailto:}}}
 link less risky ?
