So, this is the first web project I've ever used ASP.Net for, and I must admit, I'm growing quite fond of it. However, I wish to implement a login system that does not make use of a username, rather, validating off of the email. Please spare the the arguments
in favor of username; I'm very familiar with both sides of the argument. This is an eCommerce site, and username based authentication would be very out of place.
I've done quite a bit of reading, and it seems like I need to roll a custom MembershipProvider. I'm hoping I just missed something, and the stock system can accomodate this.

I've been working on a open source account management library here:

Well that was certainly an interesting and informative read.
Considering I was going to implement a database driven job application system, it made sense for me to just roll my own customer account system as well. I'm definately going that route now.
