I got caught this way too - registration email wound up in gmail's spam folder. Perhaps a warning that this is happening should be added to the page displayed after new users upload their username and email address. Eg "Note that some email systems will place our reply (containing your password) into the spam folder."

I've added a note to this effect on the registration page.
