    Hi @Amul Khanal

    Thank you for posting this in Microsoft Q&A.

    I understand you have created bulk users, and you want to send login details to their respective mails.You can use PowerShell to send the user login details in their respective mails with Send-MailMessage command. Below is the sample request

    $sendMailMessageSplat = @{
        From = 'User01 <user01@fabrikam.com>'
        To = 'User02 <user02@fabrikam.com>', 'User03 <user03@fabrikam.com>'
        Subject = 'Sending the Attachment'
        Body = @" 
    Dear $UserName, Welcome to our system! Here are your account details: 
    User name: $UserName Temporary 
    password: $TempPassword 
    Please log in and change your password immediately. Thank you, Your IT Team "@
        SmtpServer = 'smtp.fabrikam.com'
    }
    Send-MailMessage @sendMailMessageSplat

    Hi Amul,

    If you have already missed out on sending this information (and their temp passwords) I would recommend enabling SSPR in your environment and allowing your users to reset/set their own passwords.

    How it works: Microsoft Entra self-service password reset

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/entra/identity/authentication/concept-sspr-howitworks

    "Microsoft Entra self-service password reset (SSPR) gives users the ability to change or reset their password, with no administrator or help desk involvement. If a user's account is locked or they forget their password, they can follow prompts to unblock themselves and get back to work. This ability reduces help desk calls and loss of productivity when a user can't sign in to their device or an application."
