    I am working on a WordPress site that is private. Registration is done in the backend. http://codex.wordpress.org/Users_Add_New_Screen indicates it is required and needed for notifications Customer wants the email field to no longer be a required field. Is this possible?

    I do see the use for the use of an email address, but it would be nice if we can decide to add it when need be. I also wonder if there would be a way to encrypt passwords stored in the database like the password is.

    I also have a client that very much needs the email address to not be a required field. If anyone knows how to do this it would be a great help.

    In the end the client decided to register all clients from the backend and he now adds dummy email addresses. After a registration is done his clients can log in using a user name and password.
