    I added on my registration form (https://datenknoten.me/registrieren/) that users should add a special user with their desired recovery email to their roster. Do you think this is a good idea?

    I'm not sure I understood what you did or tried to do tbh

    But if it's just oob registration it's good

    it is oob registration, but from time to time I get e-mails from users that they can't log in any more because they forgot their password and I have to say I can't do a bit and they have to register a new account, which is in my opinion a bad expierience. So I thought of this pattern if a new user adds his e-mail to his roster with the nickname 'RECOVERY_EMAIL' and I see that I can send them a new password to that address.

    Oob registration with accounts tied to an e-mail address is always good, against spam, for account tasks etc. Just make sure Disposable EMail Addresses can't be used

    0xAFFE: Sounds like a very good idea, actually. It doesn't need special software, so it will just work. Also, they can change the e-mail address later on.
