Difference between not verified and not confirmed

What's the difference? Why a user that confirmed the mail isn't verified?

Could I automate and set that a user that confirmed the mail is also verified?

Thank you all!

I'm running vf3.2

    A user with an unconfirmed email simply hasn't proven that the mail given in the sign in process belongs to him. His email(!) is in an unconfirmed status.

    All posts of a verified user(!) are not scanned for spam.

  • Thank you! And what about the last question?

    I thought the last question wouldn't be relevant after understanding that you would open up your forum for spammers if you change that info automatically. But anyway: you've asked for it!

    You need to create a very small plugin with essentially that function:

    public function userModel_beforeConfirmEmail_handler($sender, $args) {
       $sender->setField($args['ConfirmUserID'], 'Verified', true);
