XF 1.2 manual usergroup promotion with email notification

Please can someone tell me if this scenario is possible, it's the way I have been doing it with vbulletin

  1. enable Moderate New Members
  2. user registers and goes into (COPPA) Users Awaiting Moderation usergroup (which has posts moderated)
  3. They are also entered into the users awaiting moderation queue
So when a mod has approved their first or x number of posts and decides they are kosher, he/she then accepts the in the users awaiting moderation list, and they are promoted to registered users and get an email saying their posts are no longer moderated.

In other words the first promotion after registering must be manual, but they get an email.

Is this possible in xenforo?
