Not quite sure where to put this…
Continuing the discussion from New signups not receiving welcome email:
Thinking this was a new forum that wasn’t sending mail, I helpfully recommended:
(Which seemed helpful, if a bit snarky, and someone closed the topic, so I wasn’t the only one…)
But (in a PM I learned that) I got it wrong. The real issue here is that the “Welcome Email” is really an activation email , and if you use an auth provider that “welcome message” isn’t sent.
I think this isn’t the first time that someone’s been confused by this and there’s even Automatic Welcome Message To New Users, which addresses this ‘there is no welcome message’ issue.
