How to auto subscribe new members on the site?

I have a couple of problems with this plugin. In an older version, all users could be added to groups, or not, at my discretion. Now, when new members join, their usernames do not even appear in the member section of e-Newsletter until after such a time as their profiles are edited. And then, I cannot even add them to a member group in e-Newsletter until after they have chosen to subscribe themselves. Before, I could make these choices and changes myself through the e-Newsletter options, now I cannot.

I want to be able to subscribe users myself like I used to, and I would also like to see members on the list after they register, without having to edit their profile, as well as assign them to a default group after registration.

Any help with these issues?
