ASP.Net Membship Never Returns DuplicateEmail

We have a site where users can register and all e-mail addresses should be unique.

I've got "requiresUniqueEmail" set to true in the web.config file. However the "DuplicateEmail" status is never returned, even when I create several accounts with the same e-mail address. All other status codes return fine.

I've done some reading and one guy has said that the duplicate e-mail functionality doesn't work correctly and he wrote a custom validator. Is this what I'm going to have to do or am I missing something? Thanks!

I've used the requiresUniqueEmail feature many times and haven't had an issue with it.  Is it fully creating the user?  Try adding <clear /> to the line just above your membership provider declaration.
