Is it possible to force commentors to give their email in order to comment? I tried adding a custom field, but it doesn't force them to leave an email (they can leave any text in the field they want) and also it doesn't appear in the backend.
How can I make someone leave an email address in order to comment without loggin in?

That's not that easy. The problem is that for non-registered users the emails are stored in the #__commment table, but for registered users we just have a relation to the users table and we get the email from there.
The only way to currently export the emails would be with a custom sql query that you would have to run directly on the SQL server.
