how to work with users who don't have email addresses?

we have a situation with multiple temp users who are not going to be given corporate email accounts, just an odoo username and password, but we can't set them up because they need a unique email address as the login address and to send the password link. Is there a good way to handle this, in the past we could have set a username and password for them, I am fine with the links, but the dependency on email as the transport for the links is a bit of an issue. Any tips on how to handle this situation?

No problem.. use sam procedure as in v7... add user with common username, after createing, on form view, you can set password for that user.. 

Send him login/password .. that's it..

well no, on form view you can't set the password for the user any more, you can only send them a new link with a token to reset the password. Unless I am missing some setting somewhere or module to turn that back on?
