    Hi guys I want to enable a solution for my clients where they add subusers but they don't need email adresses for them. Currently even if I remove the email field form the subusers account form it still insists the subusers has a unique email address.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    Guy

    Unfortunately it is not possible. aMember require unique email address for each user. You can use workaround and suggest your users to use there own email with tags (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address#Address_tags). So in case your user has email main@example.com he can use address like john+main@example.com, mary+main@example.com etc. All emails to these addresses should be delivered to main@example.com according specification. So main user wil get all notification for his subusers to his email address and moreover he will be able to check to address and figure out what subusers this mail belong to. (He will see full email with tag here eg. john+main@example.com)

    It is possible to implement customization which assign such email to subusers automatically eg. username+main@example.com, based on main user email address.

    Thanks Ceasar. Will the customisation make updating the core an issue?

    Also I had a request for customization back in mid May that I was told would be started on in early June but after a number of requests for an update I have had nothing in response for over a month. Are customizations now starting to be worked on again?

    Thanks

    Yes, it is necessary to modify core files of subusers modules.
