My apologies if this has been described already, I've done a lot of searching but have not found exact an description for what I'm trying to do.

I do not allow anonymous posts, you must register to post. I have the CAPTCHA add-on. Even so, I'm getting a lot of spammers.

In setup_options.php I have set:

With these parameters set, when new users register they are sent an e-mail with their password. They can then login and start spamming while I sleep. I do NOT receive an e-mail that anyone has registered.

I would like instead to receive an e-mail when someone tries register. I do not want them to gain access to post until I manually approve or reject them. If it's in the middle of the night, tough, they can wait. Is this possible? I have not found a way.

Thanks for any help!

Look here: Administrator approving new users? .. I think it will help you.

Captcha has a different mode when it checks for a code each time when the post is made.
These options are named (in bb_plugins.php) $enableForRegistered and $checkEachRequest, you may try to play with them.
