Well you've heard from multiple people that what you want to do isn't possible.
I expect you could hack the Joomla code to disable unique e-mail address checking but as noted above unique e-mails are required by Joomla so you will probably break a whole host of other things.
This leaves you with a limited number of options as outlined above.
Also, every person on this site is just a 'user' of Joomla. The EduGeek Joomla 1.5 package is one created by a user of the site making use of Joomla! and some hard work getting it to look nice. If you want detailed technical solutions on how to hack the internals of the software, you'd be better speaking over there, but you are most likely going to receive the same sort of responses - that the ldap module needs a unique email address.
Also, setting up mail aliases for users should not take a long time. Sure, doing the couple of hundred you say you'd have to do now is a pain, but in the future it would just be part of normal account creation procedures and take a couple of seconds extra per user.
And yes, you came to a site asking for advice. You were directly asking us what we think you should do. So your bright red rant is not only rude but also incorrect.

What exactly needs the email to be unique to be used?
I used to use php nuke which also used unique email registration. It was just a requirement within the email registration page. None of the system actually required a unique email.
When contacting a user it just sent an email to that user. (email addy saved in mysql table).
This system as a guess is based on the same process.
I did hack the phpnuke code and removed the unique process without having any detrimental issues.
So back to my original question does anyone here know how to remove the unique email registration???
I don't use Joomla in anger so I'm not sure if this applies but have found this: Joomla! Community Forum • View topic - Unique Email Required? Where is it??
I'd seriously recommend you rethink why your needing to do this and try to find another solution though.
