I've just tried to register and login into your site. It obviously records the username(email) and password, but certainly doesn't fire off an email confirmation and does not allow me to login.
Because I was unable to login, I again completed the registration procedure and quite rightly the site pointed out that there was already a registered user with those details.
I'm also trialling a site which appears to be working OK in that regard. If it helps you, try it out at www.stringer-family(dot)co(dot)uk
