I'm planning to utilise a third party authorisation service in order to allow users to sign in with their google/facebook accounts etc.
In particular I am aiming to use the Yii extension here-
I am uncertain of one point, however, and I'm hoping to clear this up before investing time into implementing this. How will I email a user? Are there third part API functions that I can use for this that vary between third party providers?
It occurs to me that this must be the same for the StackExchange network as I frequently receive email from the site and only sign in with my google credentials. However, upon checking my profile I can see my email address is listed, so I'm no longer sure.
Is anyone able to confirm how this works? If no-one is aware I will test this by registering a new account solely through google and check for emailed notifications.
