Well, you got me there, I actually haven't yet tried to register. I
supposed that the emails are visible after logging in. If there's a
web form, maybe I should reconsider the whole plan, because I don't
very much like the idea of sending all the messages through the
MathWorks' site.

In any case if there are e-mail addresses, I'll simply collect them
and contact the authors. I'll share the list privately with others.
