How can I send an email to users after registration, confirming they have been registered?

From user/register, when users enter the required data (name, username, email) as administrator I receive the account information, but the users don't get any message.

In configuration > people > account settings or going to config/people/accounts you can set who gets what and even modify the text

Register without admin approval

Check this setting

Who can register accounts? : visitors

and the user that registers will receive Welcome (no approval required) email which will include a one time link to complete registration. Upon clicking on the link and following the instructions he is a registered user.

Register with admin approval

check the following setting

Who can register accounts? : Visitors, but administrator approval is required

The user will get Admin (user awaiting approval) email upon registering and if enabled on Account activation the setting Notify user when account is activated is enabled the user will get a 2nd email upon admin approval.

enter image description here

  • Thank you and I am sorry for the late reply, I just got back. I have set up "Visitors, but administrator approval is required". Is there a way to send out the email with admin approval on?

  • Hello, I checked and all these settings are enabled. Still the user gets no email. Any guesses what might be wrong? Thank you again.
