I can't seem to find documentation for notifying a user via email after their account has been created by a script.

$user = \Drupal\user\Entity\User::create();


$user->set('init', 'email');
$user->set('langcode', $language);
$user->set('preferred_langcode', $language);
$user->set('preferred_admin_langcode', $language);

//$user->notify()? something?

$result = $user->save();

    This is set under /admin/config/people/accounts.

You can find the configuration on admin in the /admin/config/people/accounts but if you want to notify the user programmatically without taking care of what is the config you can use _user_mail_notify function.

_user_mail_notify documentation
