Modify User Registration Mail

Is it possible to modify the E-Mail that gets send out to new Users? I would like to display the actual password instead of *** in the mail. User can not sign up themselves in our wiki. One of the Admins has to do it. It would help allot, if the user could see the password that was picked.


yes, you can modify the email, but its possible that you don't need to..

in configure there is an EXPERT 'hide password' setting for registration which you could possibly flip:

{Register}{HidePasswd}    
Hide password in registration email to the user Note that Foswiki sends administrators a separate confirmation. 

conversely, if you really do need to modify the email, there are 2 template files (registernotify.tmpl and registernotifyadmin.tmpl) that you can change by following the instructions at http://foswiki.org/System/ManagingUsers#Customizing_registration_Emails (should be shipped with your foswiki too)
