    Is it possible to have an "opt in" radio button in the person's entry or edit form to enable "email to users"?
    That way the person can enter their email address but select not to receive email GROUP mailouts.

      I assume you talk about the Mailto plugin.
      The easiest way to do it now without coding would be to create a new group:

      Mailme
      Mailme(not)

      Chessclub
      Chessclub (no mailinglist)

      People can assign themselves to whichever group they want (if they can edit their contact).

      Otherwise we would need to make a mailinglist manager plugin because one could opt in in one group and opt out in another ... that is not an easy modification of the codebase.

      Email to users in the admin panel is a strict admin feature to announce downtime of the server or similar. Use the mailto plugin instead.
