members on my forum are receiving new member account activation emails

Pleae explain.

I think there was maybe 1 member with a old (queued) activation emai
Other wise give me some information from your testuser or which user did receive 2 acivation emails.

Also;
every body can request a new password...
Maybe it was a new password email requested by someone else?

Otherwise please give some info so I can investigate.

Thanks

ok, this is whats happening........... in my board configuration, under "users registration settings" i have got the account activation set to Admin, so when someone new registers to the forum, i have to approve their account. when somebody does register to my forum, i get a message sent to my email (the email used to register my forum) saying that the users account needs to be activated etc.

the problem is that i am not the only one receiving this email, it is also being sent to my globeral moderators, and maybe all other registered users :?: :?: :?:

hope this makes sense :lol:

thanks

there has been a change in this now, i think it was something to do with permissions, i have changed the permissions for the global mods and as far as i know, they ave stopped getting the emails. only problem is, im not getting them either for some reason :?: i have had a few new members register but no activation emails.
