    Hi,

    I'm looking to add some data extracted from an additional database into my signup emails and into lost password emails.

    Does anyone know of a way to do this, or can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Many thanks
    Richard

    You'll have to edit the file sendpass.php, have it open up the database, search for the matching email, extract the fields you want, and assign them to a variable to be passed to the email template.

    It's doable, but will require customization.

    Thanks for the advice. I've successfully added the info I wanted into the sendpass email - easier than I expected!

    Do you know where the variables are defined for the signup email as I wish to do the same with that.

    Many thanks
    Richard
