Help, Confirmation of e-mail address not being received.  Can we auto-register people?

Hello there,


I've had some complaints from students that they're not receiving announcement notification e-mails, and on further investigation, it would appear that their e-mail address has not been confirmed and they never fully registered.


The problem we've found is that the students aren't receiving a registration link due to the way their usernames are added into Canvas (through our University registry system), so the problem is a bigger issue than I had realised and we've got potentially hundreds of students not receiving notifications.


I know the manual solution would be to ask the students to confirm their e-mail address in their account settings.  But I find this is too clunky and people might not do it or need further help.


Is there a way that we can automatically setup students so that they don't have to register their e-mail address manually?


Or is there other solutions possible to get around this problem?
