We streamlined our signup to require only email and a password.
However, we think some users think we are asking for their email password.
I'm trying to think of ways to succinctly communicate that is NOT what we want.
So I'm thinking:
App Registration Email Address: Create New Password : [ ] (Not your email password)
App Registration Email Address: Password : [ (New password. Not your email password) ]
I realized, after reading some other related UX questions that we do not even need to ask for a password yet. That solves this immediate problem AND simplified registration

Then we email them (with temp password) a link. Link confirms the email addresss and lets them change password.
