Administrator is not receiving emails after user registers

Hi,
Just wondering if someone can help me figure out why the administrator is not getting emails when a new user registers on my JOOMLA site.

I did a few hacks to stop a user getting the activation link, but I am not sure why no email is being sent to the administrator anymore?

When a user registers the user gets the correct email saying their account has been created and is waiting approval, but no email is going to the administrator

Can someone help me check the correct files to see why this isn't happening??
Thanks

Just an extra note, but emails are being sent to the adminstrator when an order is placed on the site, so its not a problem with the mail settings.

Yes.
You need to go to user Manager
Click on your Admin account
at the bottom of that account there is an option of Receive System Emails or Messages something like that. Click yes to that option.
Thanks

Hi There,
I am using Virtuemart to handle registrations etc.

The first option you wrote would work, but the Super Administrator is not the one who receives the admin emails...its set to a different email....does this cause a problem?

Then what you can do is who ever wants to receive the emails needs to have an account on the site, and using "User Manager" you need to set his/her option to receive System Emails.
Also there is a field in VM configuration which takes Admins Email address from you. Which address is used there ? is that the address you want to receive notifications for New User ?

Yep, the VM config email is now the same as the super administrator who I want to get emails!
Thank you
