A new user registration is not receiving the email to validate their registration request.

We have the settings:
New User Account Activation : 'Administrator'

After registering we get the message on the screen: Your account has been created and an activation link has been sent to the email address you entered. Note that you must activate the account by selecting the activation link when you get the email before you can login.

However no email comes.
If we use the setting New User Account Activation: 'Self'
The email is received.

Any ideas what could be the problem. It used to work for us but we recently updated to the latest versions of Joomla (3.9.1) and Easy Profile (Pro 2.6.3).

this email was sent by Joomla (not Easy Profile), but if you does not receive it you need to check these things:
- Check in the SPAM folder, as long as you use PHP Mail in Global configuration to send emails then there is a high probability that emails will end up in spam folder
- Check your email configuration, go to System->Global Configuration, go to "Server" tab, click to button "Send Test Mail" and see the result

Thanks for your answer. The thing is that we are receiving an email if we set New a account activation to ‘Self’.
It is in the case of the setting ‘Administrator’ where the email is not being sent to the user for validation.
We will raise this to Joomla if this setting is not Easy Profile.
