    I do have member-profiles being not-visible to guests.

    When somebody registers, but did not confirm his account via the confirmation-link (because he is using a e-mail which is not working or a fake e-mail during signup), will this person still being able to view the profiles ?
    I mean: when a user is signing-up, is he still able to view the user-profiles, although he did not confirm his registration due to the fact that he is using a fake e-mail-address?

    Yes, profiles are visible to members who haven't confirmed their email address.

    Profile posts aren't visible though.

    They're no longer a guest at that point, they are an unconfirmed member.

    i think, i found =)

    Edit "Unregistered/Unconfirmed" usergroup's permissions
    set "View user profiles: NEVER"
    so, if a person will register your forum and confirm his e-mail, he can see users' profiles
    but, if he won't confirm the e-mail, he cannot see users' profiles

    Yep. Pending accounts use the guest permissions. "Pending" meaning they are awaiting approval or email confirmation.
