    Just installed WP. Testing system and everything appears to work fine except I never recieve a registration email when I sign up as a user. Now, I do get the notice of the registration in my admin and even get the admin email notice, but as a new user, I never get the email.

    Is it in your spam folder? Or, might be a PHP limitaton at your host. This has been recommended before: WP mail SMTP

    There seems to be some sort of fault with the wp_mail function.
    A fix is to edit function wp_new_user_notification in the pluggable.php file as follows

    // PJB: original code fails to create an email
    // wp_mail($user_email, sprintf(__(‘[%s] Your username and password’), get_option(‘blogname’)), $message);

    // try adding cc to admin’s email – it works!!
    wp_mail(get_option(‘admin_email’), sprintf(__(‘[%s] Your username and password’), get_option(‘blogname’)), $message, ‘Cc:’.$user_email);

    I just installed version 2.9, and I followed the instructions to add Cc, but it didn’t work. Anyone know how to solve this problem?
