I have the latest install 1.5.2 and I'm currently testing user registration and password retrieval. As admin, I receive an email advising that a new user has signed up. This is good!
As a test user when I register using a valid email address I received NO CONFORMATION email nor do I recieve a email advising new password generation. This is bad!
When I requested a new password (retrieve) I received an email with a link format so I could change the password. This is good!
I suppose two out of three isn't so terrible odds.
However, it would be nice to receive an email in the first instance to confirm (as a user) that I have registered to this blog and offer me a dummy password which I can change once I log in.
I know, I know, WordPress generates this automatically. But it's NOT WORKING. I've read the FAQ and numerous other threads but there seems to be a disturbing trend here. Codex is telling me that I don't have to do anything, that wordpress mail will generate all necessary emails.
Obviously this isn't quite true. Can someone advise me how to fix this problem, please.
Thanks in advance
