We need the same email confirmation after a new account is created to be sent to the store owner email. Emails are sending fine to customer, but not sure if this is default functionality to send that email to store owner as well? If not, please advise how to make this happen.

    email to store owner is not a default functionality. to do this you have to override a customer controller or write a event observer. Jul 15, 2014 at 2:44

Use Magento Event/Observer functionality for this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <notify_new_customer module="Namespace_Modulename">
                    <label>Template to notify administrator that new customer is registered</label>


Congratulations, a new customer has been registered:<br />
Name: {{var name}}<br />
Email: {{var email}}<br />
...<br />


class Namespace_Modulename_Model_Observer
    public function customerRegisterSuccess(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
        $emailTemplate  = Mage::getModel('core/email_template')
            ->setTemplateSubject('New customer registered');
        $result = $emailTemplate->send(Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_general/email'),(Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_general/name'), $observer->getCustomer()->getData());
