    So did you try what I suggested? I've been looking again today and if that doesn't work then I have no idea. It doesn't appear to be possible. As I said before you could just put dummy information into the email field.

    We had this problem at one point unfortunatly we now have a script to create users directly for our database. This might work:

    In LDAP settings don't assign an e-mail field but set it to be locked.

    Does your OU not hold e-mail addresses?

    Sorry not to be more help.

    Cheers

    What's stopping you from using a dummy email address for your year 7 students?

    I think Moodle requires email addresses because the user has the option to send email messages when a new forum topic is posted etc.

    To clarify what I was trying to say (admittedly a long shot).

    Navigate to your LDAP authentication plug settings page in moodle "Settings link in Administration > Users > Authentication"

    Scroll down until you get to Email: then set Lock value to be "Locked" (See screenshot).

    It is possible, I tried this today at work.

    Read this post on the moodle.org webstie and edit the relevant PHP files, you can choose whether e-mail is mandatory or not, and it does work!!
