We have already sorted out the email addys for two whole school years so changing it all now for them at least is not really an option. It is just the other two years that are the problem
(I realise that I've automatically assumed you have a domain there... do you?)
If you use LDAP authentication then the user logs on with the same username and password that they do to log on to a computer on the network.
If you need some help give me a PM or email.
You can use the LDAP authentication to authenticate from Active Directory but to lock down the user settings like the email address for the Moodle account you would have to have email addresses set in Active Directory for each user so that it can be pulled through into Moodle.
We only have two years of pupils with actual email accounts, but all users have the email field in AD populated so that the Moodle authentication doesn't demand things to be typed in on the first login.
My scripting isn't great but I managed to make a visual basic script to step through the user OUs and then set the email field for user accounts to username & "@domain name". That runs every day to set the email field for new accounts. The only problem you would get is if you create an account and someone tries to log into Moodle on that same day before the script has run. Luckily for me no one seems that keen.
