Does anyone know how to customize Notification Email for new users? I want to add some institute's information inside that Email. Where can I find the template of the email?

You need to edit the language strings for the internal authentication plugin. Edit auth/internal/lang/en.utf8/auth.internal.php , strings 'registeredemailmessagetext' and 'registeredemailmessagehtml'.

You can use a local language file to put your local modifications if you don't want to change the standard language file (that will be overwritten with next upgrade).

Hi Rocky,

If you are looking for insitution membership notification, then search for 'institutionmemberconfirmmessage' in htdocs/lang/en.utf8/mahara.php

Hello Richard,

There is no setting within Mahara to turn off the registration notifications. You could make a change to the code on your installation or propose a change for core Mahara.
