XF 1.2 Users Awaiting Approval question.


How does a new user end up in 'Users Awaiting Approval'?

I do NOT have the 'Enable Manual Approval" checked, so shouldn't they be automatically approved
after an email confirmation? Are these people waiting for their email confirmation to be done?

Thank you

I am wondering why a user who just registered at my Forum is being put into "Manual Approval" ?

I have the "XF 1.2 default Spam settings" and the new user has been listed under "Manual Approval", although checking the IP-address and the Email of that user, it does not show up in Stop-Forum-Spam nor does it show any results regarding spam when I google his IP or Email-address. Also, his IP-address and Email are not listed on any blacklist.
