Setting Up Account Emails

When a new user registers on your site, Drupal will send them a Welcome e-mail. When a user requests a password reset, an e-mail is sent with the details. E-mails are sent for various account-related activities. You can configure these e-mails on the Account Settings page as shown in Figure 7-8.

E-mails

Welcome (new user created by ad min i stiator)

Customize welcome e-mail messages sent to new members upon registering, when administrative approval is required. Available variables are: [slte:najne]. [site:urfl. [username], Eusermall].

Welcome (awaiting approval)

[site:login-url], [user:edlt-url], [userpajsword], [userone-ame-login-url], |user:cancel-url].

Follow the next exercise to create a customized Welcome e-mail.

| Customizing Your Welcome E-mail

In this exercise, you create a customized Welcome e-mail that will be sent to each new user.

1. Navigate to Configuration C> Account Settings.

2. At the bottom of the page under Emails, select Welcome (No Approval Required).

3. Type in the following information:

Hey there [user:name], and welcome to our community. Please click the link below to verify your e-mail address and enable your account. We look forward to seeing you around the community.

[user:one-time-login-url]

For security reasons, this URL can only be used once. Once you have logged in, you can modify your password and other account settings at [user:edit-url].

See you around the community!

4. Click the Save Configuration button at the bottom of the page. How It Works

As you saw in the exercise, Drupal sends out several e-mails for various account activities. Each of these e-mails has a number of variables that can be used to create a personal touch to your site's e-mails.
