This is indeed the functionality I'm looking for. Currently I publish
all my students' usernames on a web page outside loncapa, and tell them
that their password is the last 4 digits of their SSN. It would be nice
to be able to mail them this information to their campus email from the
loncapa COM email. Your method looks like it would work, but seems to be
more trouble than what I'm already doing.
Let's hear what Guy has to say...
Thanks for your suggestion.
