availabe variables to be used in email

Could someone provide a whole list of variables which can be used in prepared emails? or is there a way of asking the system to output the list?

I really need to use some variables such as user first and last name instead of full name in emails.

Hi newbies,

Each template tends to have a different set of specific variables; see some other discussions in the forum e.g. this search. There are currently no variables to expose just first and last name components of user identification; are you trying to re-format how names are presented, or something else?
