I cant figure out where to set the defaults settings for when theres a new user registered.

What im trying to do, is to set the "Send notification for all new messages:
Keep sending notifications even if the other messages weren't read yet." to default True.

Can anyone help me out with this?

There are two possible places to modify this.

First, the very basic stuff gets set in the insertNew() method of the class. E.g., username, password, and e-mail.

The second place is in the addNew(User u) method of the class that impliments the UserDAO interface.

The second is probably the correct place to add in custom settings since the "view" classes should probably just collect form data and process it. In addition, overriding a few DAO implimentations if fairly simple. Just subclass your DB server's DataAccessDriver implimentation so that it uses your custom UserDAO implimentation (which can be a subclass of the DB specific one) and then change your config properties to use your DataAccessDriver.
