Support » Installing WordPress » New user email not being sent

  • Hi,

    I know there are various threads on this but I have found no real answer. I have fresh installs of WP2.1 set-up on 2 systems, on my web host using Linux and on my local system using Mac OS X 10.4.8

    All works fine on both systems except new user notification emails are not being sent to the new user. Emails to admin are received as are lost password emails to users.

    I know it must be a problem in wp_new_user_notification function in
    /wordpress/wp-includes/pluggable.php but I only have the most basic understanding of PHP.

    My web host has checked mail() is working OK on their system and it seems to be working OK on my local system.

    Anyone out there who really understands PHP with any ideas?

    Any help appreciated.

  • Is there anything in your mail server’s error logs?


    I have concluded I have 2 different problems here:
    1) If you manually add new users from admin, no new user confirmation email is sent at all – is this normal? My online blog I was only adding users manually.

    2) On my local network the confirmation email arrives only after another new user is registered. My network problem I guess.

    Does anyone know a way to get a confirmation email sent when you add users manually?



    Hi, I have the same situation on line here. Did you find the reason why ?

    I found this in the bug tracking department. Not much help but at least it gives a reason.

    WP installed in cPanel add-on domains do not send welcome messages to new WP users.

    It is marked “Won’t fix” so there’s not a lot of hope!

    However, another post said that dagon design’s import users works OK, if slowly.
