at the moment I'm getting the following mail an user-creation:

Hallo Lastname Fristname,

diese E-Mail-Adresse wurde von einem Administrator auf der Seite example.com für einen neuen Benutzer registriert.

Es folgen Benutzername und Passwort zur Anmeldung auf der Seite http://example.com/

Benutzername: myusername
Passwort: $2y$10$YPB0TVz.1jz4G

Bitte auf diese Nachricht nicht antworten da sie automatisch vom System erstellt wurde und nur zur Information dient.

How can I prevent the mail from being sent and use my own text?


Registration message comes from Language Variable defined in com_users language file:


Replace en-GB with your desired language code of course.

You should search your message in the above file and instead of directly editing .com_users.ini which might get overwritten in next joomla update, you should create language override.

Please check the following link how to override the langauge:


  • Okay, thanks a lot. Is it possible to completely disable this notification?

    Disabling Registration Message without disabling Registration itself is not possible.

  • Would it be possible to disable user registration but still use the User-Object to add users? If this is possible: Will there still be registration-mails if JUser is user?

    I wouldn't know that. I am just an integrator, not a developer. Ask another question of that matter. If you are satisfiied with this answer, please accept it.
