    You can disable email confirmation by going to /dashboard/settings/registration and unchecking the checkbox on the bottom ("Require users to confirm their email addresses (recommended)" in english)

    I can't help you with the mailchimp plugin. You may have more luck if you open a new thread under the plugin by clicking on "Ask a Question" on the plugins page

    Disabling the welcome mail requires overriding the UserModel::SendWelcomeMail() method. I don't have a test bed in front of me, so all I could suggest at the moment is adding return true; as the first line in that method (which can be found in /applications/dashboard/models/class.usermodel.php.

    If no one else comes up with a plugin that overrides this without a core modifcation, ping me in a month and I should be able to whip something up for you.

    Hi great thank for your help.

    1. As i dont knowed where place the "return true" i have delete it :

    "$Email->Subject(sprintf(T('[%s] Welcome Aboard!'), $AppTitle));

    i have try on computer and mobile and it work. I dont know if is clean to do that but it work hehe.

    1. For peoples who see this subject and try mailchimp integration. You can use the fonction "bulk mail" for see if it work. And if it not work, the board will show u the error. For me is the mailchip list who was disable by herself. i enable a new time and it work now.

    This for feedback. Great thank everyone for your help.
