Not done point 1 yet, still to do. But a question on point 2.
The emailing of the registration to user through xampp now works, it was because the "from field" was not in email format, I just had some text in it.
1. However I cant find way to change the date format and time zone display at the top of the registration email.
2. Also I cant see where to change the text label in the left column of the registration email which displays the users entered registration details.
It currently has the text "Registration group Email", "Registration group Password" etc which needs to be just "Email", "Password" etc
I've tried changing labels in a number of places but I've not found the correct location to achieve this.
