When I registered a new forum account, the forum sent me an email which contained my password in PLAINTEXT!
I don't think it should do that!
The message was:
Your registration request at Welcome to Fractal Forums has been received, joeytwiddle.
The username you registered with was joeytwiddle and the password was XXXXXXXXX.
As far as I know, that part of the forum is automated and cannot be adjusted.
It's no real security lapse at all though. You can, and should if concerned, change the password immediately after activating the account. The email is then worthless.
Sorry it bothered you, but I think there's no way to change that.
Christian (our Fearless Leader) may know for sure though
