    Hi, when a user signs up for my site they get a email saying something like:

    Username: usernametheypicked
    Password: randompassword

    I would also like this email forwarded to me.
    Is there a way of doing this?

    There probably is, but that's a very bad idea. The only person that should have the users password is the user. In a few places you would be breaking privacy laws by having access to your users passwords because there's a very good chance that their password on your system will be the same as on another system (most people tend to use between 1 and 3 password for everything that they have).

    If you really need it and can justify why I'll look into it a bit further, but I would strongly suggest against it without a very good reason.
