E-mail alert for admin approved registrations ?

Post by ossandust » Sun Jan 21, 2018 4:01 pm

I have following settings enabled :
- General > user registration settings > Account activation : "By Admin"
- General > email settings > Enable board-wide emails: enabled
In the user control panel of my admin account :
- Board preferences > Edit notification options :
all checkboxes under "email" are ticked (including "administration notifications > User requiring activation")
Not sure if needed but I purged the cache after the config changes above.
Still I don't get any email notification about users to be activated (at least not for the 2 different users I registered myself as a test). I do see a notification in the user control panel after logging in.
When I click the "Send a test email" button in the general setup, I successfully receive the test email.
Does anyone notice what I'm missing?
