    • 3). Download the file "pluggable.php" and open it with a text editor, such as Notepad.

    • 4). Press the "Ctrl" and "F" keys simultaneously to open the "Find" dialog box. Search the file for the phrase "Your username and password." This brings the cursor to a line of code that looks like "wp_mail($user_email, sprintf(__('[%s] Your username and password'), $blogname), $message);".

    • 5). Place the cursor in front of the phrase "wp_mail." Type two backslashes and a space. The line should now look like "// wp_mail($user_email, sprintf(__('[%s] Your username and password'), $blogname), $message);".

    • 6). Save the file "pluggable.php" and upload it back to your Web server. WordPress will no longer send messages to new subscribers.
