Question: Where should I insert this code?

Create an extension with a php function that is then hooked to the hook. Add extension to Localsettings.php.

Question: How can I access the E-Mail address entered by the user in the login/create account email field?

Check the functions in User.php; those are the ones you can use to get the information. So for the email address it would be $providedEmailAddress = $user->getEmail();. -- 18:20, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
