      Description

      There is however no description field that appears so they can't do so.

              I've changed the setting so I can now add a description but it still doesn't let me through. See 2nd screen shot.

              OH! could you please try to not use zeros as first character in username and email?
              For historical reasons we use empty() which is sloppy and might cause this problem

              No it made no difference. I tried characters instead and still got the some problem.

              Remember finding a hack to this issue but can no longer find it. What code can I comment out to get this to work?

              workaround is to disable email confirmation

              This won't work as our students e-mail is hosted via gmail so isn't stored in AD. I'm needing to know how I can prevent the e-mail from being a required field, or even better make it required but have no need to have it confirmed... which module does this?

              username and emails are related, right? why not enter them somehow into AD?
              How did you create the email accounts in google? You may use something similar to put them into AD, right?

              Login ids are a number .. eg 9999 (i.e. the username in LDAP). E-mails are 9999@student.rosmini.school.nz GMAIL hosts the email for that subdomain. Accounts are created in GMAIL by uploading a CSV file. I could bind an e-mail address from LDAP if I were somehow able to say name+'@student.rosmini.schooll.nz' or something like that.

              I'm closing this issue as it appears to have become inactive and is probably not relevant to a current supported version. If you are encountering this problem or one similar, please launch a new issue.
