Do you want to stop receiving new user email notifications in WordPress?
If you have enabled user registration on your site, WordPress sends a notification email to the admin email address every time a new user is registered. On sites where multiple users join every day, these emails can be annoying.
In this article, we will show you how to disable new user notifications in WordPress.
There are a lot of benefits to allowing user registration in WordPress. If you have a multi-author blog, online store or membership website, user registrations are required.
However, there is also a negative aspect. Whenever a new user registers, WordPress will send you an email to the admin email address by default.
While these emails are great for keeping track of who is registering on your website and spam registrations, it can be a hassle to deal with if you connect with many people every day.
Too many new user notifications can clutter your email inbox, making it difficult to locate important emails from your customers and clients.
This is where disabling email about new users can come in handy. Let’s take a look at how you can disable new user notifications in WordPress.
WP Mail SMTP is the best WordPress SMTP plugin on the market and it dramatically improves your email delivery.
The plugin fixes the issue of emails not being delivered to your customers. This means that all your users will be sure to receive any email from your site, rather than ending up in their spam folder or being blocked altogether.
WP Mail SMTP also provides various settings for controlling your WordPress email, such as disabling automatic update notifications. In these settings there is an option to disable new user notification emails sent to the administrator’s email.
For this tutorial, we will be using WP Mail SMTP Pro version as it includes email control options. WP Mail also has a free version of SMTP that you can use to fix email delivery issues on your site.
First, you need to install and activate the WP Mail SMTP plugin on your WordPress site. If you need help, follow our step-by-step guide on how to install the plugin.
Upon activation, you can go to WP Mail SMTP » Settings from your WordPress admin panel and then enter your license key. You can find the license key in your WP Mail SMTP Account area.
After entering the key, go ahead and click on the ‘Verify Key’ button. You will now see a popup showing that you have successfully verified the key, and the site will receive automatic updates.
Next, you can go to the ‘Email Control’ tab from the menu at the top in WP Mail SMTP.
After that, just scroll down to the New User section and click on the toggle to disable the ‘Create (Admin)’ option.
Once this setting is turned off, you as the administrator will not receive any email. However, new users who register will still receive an email confirmation.
