When someone registers via the default in WP v2.1, in order to comment, what happens to the name/email address? Is it retrievable/listed somewhere?
One reason I ask is I am working on a highschool site and trying to determine the easiest and with security in mind the best way to collect classmate email addresses/maybe their phones too, and make a "contact page" or something. I am playing with a nice plugin called "WP Contact Form v.2.0WP" right now.
I have an email mass mailer and could also use the collected emails to blast out announcements - unless WP provides a that feature. I am starting to research plugs for these issues but hoped someone had experience in this matter.
