User name other than email address

User name other than email address

First time user of the registration system and after 2 weeks of frustration, careful reading of the directions AND viewing of the videos, suddenly all is well and working perfectly...except...

Client does not want to use email addresses as the user login name, and does not require that users self register. Instead client wants to personally handle all registrations (numbers are low - maybe 5 changes per month). Since not all users have email addresses, I see two directions to go:

1. Assign all users a dummy email address for logins. Issue: validation of email address for login. Since email address is dummy, then new user will not receive a validation email and consequently cannot login even if they are provided with a user name and password.

2. Assign all users a non email formatted username and password. Issue: how would I change the database to expect / receive this type of formatted information for a user name and how do I allow for a successful login without the email validation.

Thank you for your help.
