    Dear Support Team,

    Greetings, hope you are doing well!

    I have premium version of this plugin.

    I am able to just receive the notification from the first email template from the email templates list “New User Email Subject” not for the others like

    “User Verification Email”
    “User Activation Email”
    and for admin… can you please guide? if you have any video demos? and do you have any predefined template for an autoresponder? how can we use that?


    1. RegistrationMagic Staff

      As you mentioned “New User Email Subject” is going through, then other emails should also be working. They might get deliver in other folders i.e in spams, updates, promotion etc.
      If you don’t find the mail in any of the folders then please raise a support ticket on “” since we would require more information regarding the issue.
