Email-based authentication

Email confirmation is the default authentication method. When the user signs up, choosing their own new username and password, a confirmation email is sent to the user's email address. This email contains a secure link to a page where the user can confirm their account. Future logins just check the username and password against the stored values in the Moodle database.
