I think it depends in part on the type of website. I’ve done websites which were primarily for delivering content and didn’t store personal info or financial info – in this case the login details were sent to the new member. In some cases just the username was sent. You would be surprised at how many people register and immediately forget what they entered.

But knowing that rightly or wrongly that most people use the same password for everything, why would you send that in an email.

If people forget what they typed, they can use the lost password options.
