Does anyone know how to modify which fields are required when adding a new customer from the back-end?  I do not need “email” to be required.  I’ve found how to disable this on the front-end during checkout, but cannot find anything on how to accomplish this for the back-end when manually adding customers.

Take a look at the eav_attribute mysql table.
There’s a filed called is_required,
If you set that value to 0, you change that behaivor.
I made some changes of that type to product form.

I have only one simple question: How will login your customers, if they don’t have emails?
