Fixed 'Receive activity summary email' not defaulting based upon 'Receive news and update emails' through ACP Registration defaults

Affected version
2.2.0 b6

According to and "Although the "Receive news and update emails" can be toggled independently of the new "Receive activity summary email", we only display the former on registration, but if checked then we will opt the user into the activity summary emails too." both of these tickbox options should be selected if 'Receive news and update emails' is ticked during registration.

This works as expected if 'Require site email preference' @ /admin.php?options/groups/usersAndRegistration/ is ticked.

But if 'Require site email preference' @ /admin.php?options/groups/usersAndRegistration/ is un-ticked, and below it within 'Default registration values' your 'Receive news and update emails' is ticked (thus, during registration the 'Receive news and update emails' field is not displayed and defaults to ticked) then the user's Account Preference for 'Receive activity summary email' is un-ticked.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.0 RC2).

Change log:
Properly set the default value for the activity summary email if a site email preference is not required
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
