Using the default "user-signup.php" form, I am not able to have the login credentials automatically emailed to the user who is signing up, because the hosting company requires authentication for all email sent from the hosting server. (Makes sense to me.)

Is there a modification I can make in the Website Memership files to include authentication info for a sending mail server?

Thanks for any help or advice on this.

Hi Deborah, 

We don't currently support mail authentication as most hosting companies "white-list" emails that come from their own servers.

We have had a couple people ask about it lately, though, so it's on the list for v2.52.  So if you like you could help us beta test it.

If you're not on the beta list already just email me at and I can add you.  

Hope that helps!
