Title: New members that are approved by admins, email is not sent to user
Post by: dominicm on March 24, 2021, 01:43:47 AM
The user is never notified that their account is approved, even thought the initial email states. "Before you can login and start using the forum, your request will be reviewed and approved. When this happens, you will receive another email from this address."

I tested with 2.0.17 and 2.0.18.

The only workaround is to use the message feature from the forums but I wish the issue is fixed.

How did you approve the accounts?
Do you get any errors in your log?

If you approve/reject a new member's account via their profile they will not receive an email message advising them their account has been approved/rejected - they will only receive an email message if you approve/reject their membership request via the Administration Center.  In addition, you can only require account activation if you approve a membership request via the Administration Center.

I came across this known non-issue (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=562575.msg3991485#msg3991485) about six weeks ago and created the following tip/trick topic to change these behaviours: Activation Required and Emails for Accounts Approved via Member Profile (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=576788.0).
