SB Welcome Email Editor

Allows you to edit the WordPress Welcome/Forgot Password Emails to customise the content and even add an attachment. Allows adding of headers to preve

I thought that the WordPress Welcome Email to both the Admin and the User were very un-user friendly so I wrote this plugin to allow admin members to change the content and headers.

It simply adds a new admin page that has a few options for the welcome email and gives you a list of hooks to use in the text to make the email a little more personal.

Added support whereby the admin notification can be turned off or a different admin (or admins, support for multiple recipients) can be notified. Plenty of hooks to make the emails as customisable as possible.

A reminder email service has now been added whereby the admin user can send a reminder to any particular user. This can be the original welcome email or a separate template configured on the Welcome Email Editor settings page.

Please email me or use the support forum if you have ideas for extending it or find any issues and I will be back to you as soon as possible.

I would recommend the use of an SMTP service with any WordPress plugin. A large amount of emails fall needlessly into Spam bins across the world (I get a fair amount of comment approval spam to deal with) because the WordPress site uses Sendmail to deliver email. I noticed an immediate improvement when using SMTP to send. It's really easy so there's no excuse :)
