Who receives the regsitration emails?

I set up the registration on Administrators, so the admins receive the email notification when an user registers.

Ok. It works with the default "admin" user I created during installation.

But what are the minimum steps I must follow if I want to let another registered user to be promoted admin and to be ablo to receive the email?

I see a bit of confusion about this. At first I did:

ACP > Permissions > Administators , and put the user into the textarea on the left ( "Users" )

But the user didn' receive the emails.

So I went to User management > Find User, found the user, selected, choose Groups in the select box and added the user to "Administrators" group, and "Global Moderators" group. I wasn't sure it was enough, so I also selected "Levels" on the select box, and given the user the level of "Administrator".

But now maybe I've given too much power to the user (that I trust, but who never knows), so what is the minimum I have to do to let an user to be able to manage new user regsitrations (receive emails, enable them, etc)

Thanks so much for any help.

The new admin would have to have "can manage users" Admin permission

Ok, but what if I simply add the admin to the Administrators group? Does he automatically obtain such permission?

Yes, assuming the Administrators group still has that permission.
