Support » Fixing WordPress » Disable Email / Password Confirmation to New Users

  • Resolved Bryce Corkins


    I’ve got a plugin on my site that allows the user to set their password at time of registration. I’d like to completely <b>disable</b> the email notification that goes out to the user to confirm their registration (especially since it contains their password, in plain text, which is a security concern in my opinion). Strangely, I can’t seem to find anyone having the same problem, or a solution.

    Is there a fix for this? Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Any suggestions?

    There was a plugin called like WP Mail SMTP that allowed you to select things similar to that. Search for it in plugins.

    No.. it doesn’t have that option. I suppose I could switch mail to SMTP, and then just not enter server info. But I may need email functionality if a user needs a password reset or something.

    I’m kinda surprised there’s no way to control what emails wordpress sends out.

    Must be a way to create a function that would stop those emails. Its beyond these messages though but if you know PHP.

    that function is not working at all on our site. been wondering how to enable it, go figure. peace any help with setting it up would also be appreciated. we had the impression it was a default setting in the php coding which i know very little about.

    OK. Had a few minutes. The function for sending is in pluggables so wrote a plugin that should fix it for you.
    Download from:

    Just download, unzip and place the e-email.php in your Plugins directory. Then activate it in Wp-admin.
    Should solve your problem.

    Should mention the plugin only disables the email that goes to the Users. It does not disable the email that only COULD (if you set that option previously) to notify the Admin of new users.

    Hey– sorry, got busy with other things and didn’t check this thread for a bit. Thank you so much for the plugin– it’s exactly what I needed!

    Glad it helped. Will add some config options to the plugin as a couple of people asked for things as its listed in plugins on here now.
    You could mark this thread as resolved.
