Description of problem

Hi

I'm configuring a forum and I noticed that the welcome email for a standard member includes their chosen password in plain text. This is widely seen as a security issue as email is unencrypted and easily interceptable. Apparently the control of this lies in a language file, which as far as I can see, are beyond the reach of the admin panel. Can anyone suggest a way to suppress this behaviour?

Cheers
