This is really a two-pronged problem:

1) We would like to add a field to the registration asking members to opt in to receive emails from the company/website (as in, "Yes, I would like to receive your newsletter and related information by email").

Of course, we would then want to be able to pull user email addresses IF they have opted in to send newsletters (for instance, we could import the user table into Excel and sort accordingly, but the opt-in field would have to be part of that table).

2) We have over 18,000 registered members already, so what would be huge would be if we could somehow, one time, ask them to opt in when they log into the forum. Of course, we could add a permanent opt-in module (external to the forum itself), but one which would require all users to respond one time only to the request.

All suggestions are welcomed!
