Hi
I'm adding a contributor to one of my sites. She wants two user names, one email address. Set up one, no problems. Set up second and I can't use her same email address. Is there a workaround for this in Wordpress Administration?

Not really.  

1) Use a dummy address, she gets no notifications.

2) Set up an alias as the second email account, have it forward to the first

Email address is the unique identifier for the account and is also used for password reset if necessary. There's no workaround in the Wordpress Admin, although you can workaround it with your mail host.

Setting up an alias email address for the second one as Jason recommended would be my recommendation.
