Just an FYI, have been trouble shooting an issue for a client as to why the auto generated welcome email was not being received by my client who was using a me.com email account.

Turns out iCloud or at least me.com email addresses must have a really strict spam filter that actually blocks the default welcome email.

The below currently get's blocked!

[user:name],

A site administrator at [site:name] has created an account for you. You may now log in by clicking this link or copying and pasting it to your browser:

[user:one-time-login-url]/login

This link can only be used once to log in and will lead you to a page where you can set your password.

After setting your password, you will be able to log in at [site:login-url] in the future using:

username: [user:name]
password: Your password

[user:name],

However change the first line to something else and it gets through.

[user:name],

A new ac is active:

[user:one-time-login-url]/login

This link can only be used once to log in and will lead you to a page
where you can set your password.

After setting your password, you will be able to log in at
[site:login-url] in the future using:

username: [user:name]
password: Your password

Makes you wonder how many Drupal sites are sending the default welcome email and getting blocked because of Mac.

I can confirm that emails from sites I've worked on, DO get through to me.com domains - as I use mine for testing.

I can only assume the issue is specific with your domain, maybe you should check to see if it's blacklisted anywhere? Has there ever been an issue with spam from this domain?

Thanks,

Thank you Andrew211!

I can confirm that icloud *is* indeed blocking the default welcome emails for admin created accounts on a newly purchased and recently deployed domain (site has been in maintenance mode for much of its existence). I spent hours trying to isolate the cause and resolve this issue. All attempts were unsuccessful, except Andrew211's suggestion which immediately resolved the problem.

Thanks again Andrew,

Donovan
