Configuration: Customer Configuration - Create New Account Options

System > Configuration > Customers > Customer Configuration > Create New Account Options

Overview

Use the Create New Account Options section to configure whether new customers are required to confirm their account creation by email, and which default customer group to use for new customers.

Requiring email confirmation is sometimes called the opt-in method, because customers must confirm that they want to create an account. Requiring email confirmation is recommended because it reduces the number of fake accounts generated in your store.

To edit existing email templates or create new ones, see Customizing Transactional Emails.
