    To be more precise: I got the error "incorrect access detected, the server may be accessed only through address, sorry. Please notify server administration". This message turns to this other error after being displayed for a few seconds on the screen: "Authentication plugin emailadmin not found". Any suggestions on how to solve this issue? Is it related to this plugin at all? Best wishes from Paraguay

    Hey Giorgio, I went to your site and saw the error. Out of the blue, I though about trying to go to /admin to see if it would report any install/migration stuff. It actually reported a 'cache inconsistency' and proposed to 'clear'. I clicked it, and now your site seems to be working 🤷
    Best regards,

    Hey Giorgio,

    I have no reason to think that it won't work. Let me know if it doesn't 😉

Very useful indeed.....why it is not becoming a Moodle standard plugin? un abrazo desde Paraguay Giorgio

    Can anyone help to let me know why I get Call to undefined function profile_get_user_fields_with_data() in C:\xampp\htdocs\secure\auth\emailadmin\auth.php on line 399 when a new user creates an account? The account is create but no email is sent and this Fatal error appears when debugging.

    - Your Moodle version,

    Hey Lee, bad news. I just figured out that version 1.4.3 is not compatible with moodle 3.3. You'd have to upgrade moodle or use the older version of the plug-in...

    Do this plugin send emails to the students by which they can enroll them in the required courses
    plz let me know if it's perfectly working with the moodle 3.9 stable version

    Hey Shivansh, it first sends an email to the admin, notifying of the new account request. When the admin confirms the account, a confirmation email is sent to the new user.

    Courses are not involved in this sequence.

    Let me know if that answers your question.
