How to prevent new users form receiving email from Confluence

We are using Shibboleth authentication and every new user gets a Confluence account created automatically via SOAP API. In 4.3 every new user gets an email notication with a link to change the password. When using Shibboleth changing the password does not make sense. How can we prevent the email notification or at least change the text of it?

Hi Erkki,

You'll want to look at

There is a default email message that is going out which you can customize the template for. In your <confluence-install>/confluence directory live several email velocity templates. Match the email you're wanting to change with the correct template and make the changes you want.

I finally decided to change the script that creates the users. The user is first created with a dummy email address that directs to /dev/null, then correct address is set afterwards.
