Suspend Notification Email

Post by bsmither » Sun Feb 08, 2009 11:50 pm

I have Activate by Admin set. That is, when the account activation policy is set to "Administrator", the admin receives an email with a link to activate. Additionally, the user signing up receives an email stating that the account is pending.

In light of the recent registration-bot issue, I need to suspend the email that is sent to the pending registrant. This is so that I don't get the email bounce backs that say the email address doesn't exist, or that this address has been suspended for exceeded its receiving limits, or even the rare one that pleads, "You have an email address in your forum that's being horribly abused," (and I have had that happen to me early last year).

So, is the code easy to find? Any clues? Just needs to be temporary, so all I'm looking for is to comment out the appropriate mail->send() statement.

Did you set the Acct Activation by Admin under User Registration settings?
