#24411 new defect (bug)

New site email being sent despite registrationnotification set to no

When a new site is created in wp-admin/network/site-new.php it sends an e-mail to the admin email address to say the site has been created (line 92 in WP 3.5.1).

I had assumed that the registrationnotification setting in wp-admin/network/settings.php would control this but it sends the e-mail regardless of this setting.

I believe that sending this email should respect the registrationnotification setting or a new configuration option should be added to prevent sending out these e-mails.

To be clear, the option currently only has an effect on newblog_notify_siteadmin(): tags/3.5.1/wp-includes/ms-functions.php#L1001.

The option label says: "Send the network admin an email notification every time someone registers a site or user account." (tags/3.5.1/wp-admin/network/settings.php#L127).
