thanks for the answer.
I tried to access mydspace/register page and it is working. When I put the email address the system says that:
Our records show that you've already registered with DSpace and have an active account with us.
The configuration of this DSpace site means that you need a valid Web certificate to log in.

although I'm not completely familiar with the JSPUI specifics, I
know there's a registration page. Try entering
http://www.yourdspace.com/register, it should show up. You can
register the users there (this is the same page they would use to
register themselves) with their email addresses and they will receive
an email telling them how they can set a password.
I'm not completely sure, but I think they're in the database as users
even before they set the password, so you should be able to assign
them to a group. Even if not, you can wait for their registration
notification to be sent to your email (registration.notify =
firstname.lastname@example.org) and do it then.
