1) I have it set to send the user a verification email after register > this works and is received
2) It is set to send the administrator an email after user verifies >this is not received, but an email notification is received at the same email address if I have it set to notify upon user registration
3) It is set to send user a Custom New User message > This is not received after a user is changed to subscriber (when I would expect) or even after the user registers at all
After seeing other users having issues with the email notifications being received, I installed "Easy WP SMTP", but still did not receive any of the emails I am having a problem receiving.
How can I tell if a user verifies without receiving a notification? Because I have it set to need admin verification to allow users to log in, I can't just blindly promote all unverified users because I don't know if they have verified their emails without the email notification working.
Also, the user does not receive a notification that they have been confirmed, so I would have to manually send out a notification for them to know where and when they can log in.
In addition, I am unable to save a "&" in the Custom verification message field (when I save, it changes to an "&" and is sent like that to the user.). For it to actually send the "&" like I want, I have to go into my mysql database and change it there. (This is for a link to work properly.
This plugin is basically unusable for me unless there is a way to resolve these issues.
