You can stopi this configuring an option:
Administration Panel => Users & Groups => Users => Users options => Members => New accounts activation : User.
So, the user will go to email, and will activate account from there manually. Anyway, you can always check the Inactive users section. Wink

Yes, following up on what Coddy said..

I don't recommend making the users manually activating their account, as it is a major hassle especially for those on their phones etc.

I have a clan website with 80 members so far, and they are active and did not need to activate their account through email.
