  • It’s possible that your server doesn’t support sending email. Check with your hosts.

    I had the same issue and it wasnt server related. Looks like in 2.0.5 the function wp_new_user_notification($user_id, $password) is used in /wp-register.php to notify the user of their password. Unfortunately there is no include for the function which is defined in /wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php.

    I was able to fix the issue of no registration email being sent to a new user by adding the following line at the top of the /wp-register.php page under the “require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration-functions.php’);” line…

    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/pluggable-functions.php’);

    I am not sure if this is a bug or I am totally missing something in configuration but this little hack fixed my problem.

    Hi, I have similar problem with WORDPRESS 2.2. It sends registration email out, but there is no password included in the mail itself. Just Username and email is included.

    Unfortunately the above instruction doesn’t help, because the file wp-register.php is deprecated meanwhile. 😉

    Could you help?

    Same problem here. I’m using WordPress 2.2.1 as supplied by my webhost.

    Registration email goes out, but no password is included, only username and email.

    When the new user goes to the site and requests reset of password, an email is sent to the user with an address to click on to reset the password. However…

    when the user does that, an email is sent only to the ADMIN noting “Password Lost and Changed for user: _____”. NO email at all is sent to the user after the reset.

    Oops, nevermind.

    My mistake.

    All seems to be working as it should. Good emails were received, but my mail program sent them to the spam folder.

    This describes my problem to a ‘t’….I am not getting the email with a new password… I even found an emergency password reset php and temporarily loaded that on the server… got to reset my password, but it STILL DOESN”T WORK! Really getting frustrated…alreadsy lost a lot of work and time- any suggestions?




    what describes your problem to a ‘t”? your not getting any emails? your getting emails but some content is missing? what?

    you need to be specific is ppl are to help you.




    Fwiw, I just registered on your blog, and recieved an email in a matter of seconds.

    I also went through the LOST PASSWORD process on your site and got that email in a matter of seconds.

    There is NOTHING wrong with the blog located at the domain that I can see.

    You might want to try checking your spam folders or make sure that the e-mail address you have specified as the admin e-mail is actually a working e-mail address.

    And please remove my newly registered user from your blog also, thanks 🙂

    I should also note that all the necessary info was in the e-mails I received.

    Mine is, my wordpress is not sending out any mails AT ALL. I am using the latest verion of WP, I can send emails thru my webhost webmail, but WP dont send out emails like forget password, on the contact form, and stuff..


    Hi I am aslo facing this Problem My blog not sending the registration password and user id

    Mine is, my wordpress is not sending out any mails AT ALL. I am using the latest verion of WP, I can send emails thru my webhost webmail, but WP dont send out emails like forget password, on the contact form, and stuff..

    At my implementation of WP2.2.1 a person can apparently register to comment, and the message faithfully says an email will be sent, but it never is.

    The person registering does have their name and email address recorded in WP as a subscriber, but their email (and password) response is not sent.

    If people attempt to contact me via the contact form it also doesn’t work (although it does appear to – ie the handshake page is launched). I’ve had people try to register or send messages from around the world in case it was some sort of config issue with my laptop.

    I’ve been a WP user for a couple of years now and it’s never missed a beat. Other than installing the 2.2.1 upgrade there’s been no other changes, no new plugins, nothing I can think of. Could my host have changed something, could fantasico have done something unusual with the upgrade, could WP be – gasp – buggy? Say it ain’t so.

    I’m running akismet, Angsuman’s Referrer Bouncer, bad behaviour, and spam karma 2 – yes, I’ve had spam or two before – and I wonder if one of these has become over enthusiastic in their guard duty. Seems unlikely. Ok, geeks and gurus, your thoughts?

    I’m currently having the same problem. I’m using WordPress 2.2

    I’m not receiving the email as promised.

    Same problem here (2.2.2). If I look in my maillog I can see e-mails beeing send to my mailserver .. if I send a mail direct with /usr/sbin/sendmail. But if I monitor the maillog when I register a new user .. nothing in the maillog. PHP.ini is configured to user /usr/sbin/sendmail…
    Would someone please help???

    If I ask WP to re-send me my ‘lost’ password I get a ‘not wp layed-out’ message stating:

    The e-mail could not be sent.
    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…

    How and where could I have disabled the “mail()” function and is this related to my registration problem (probably, but no message there…)

    Amazingly enough, after I fantastico’d to 2.2.2 everything seems to finally work again as it used to (sorry, Wheel, that must be annoying to read). My hosting is on a linux box – I don’t see that’d make a difference – it’s usr/sbin/sendmail… As above, ok, geeks and gurus, your thoughts?
