Is there a way i can send an email to existing users with their login details : loginname and password?

I have manually added users and would like to send / resend them a email with above details.

If you use the "Forgot password" link, then webtrees will send you an email containing a username and a new password.

Just use this link and type the other user's email.

Thank you Greg; this will probably be the easiest way to handle this problem.
Could i edit the content of the eamail that will be sent or ad some text to it?

You are the admin.
You can set their password.
You can send them an email.

Why not just send them a personal email with the details?

That is exactly what I want to do, but I am not sure how to insert the user details in that email?

I guess I don't understand your question.

I just write an email like this one:


Dear XXX.
I have created an account for you on our family-tree website at www.example.com
You can log in with the username "whatever" and the password "letmein".

Regards,
Greg

Greg,

I was thinking of a way to send the email to all users at once and therefore looking for a kind of mailmerge.
But of course i can send an email to each user separately as you described.
Thank you for your help.
