Customer registration bypassing activation step

7 0 0

Hi all,

I have started to notice a weird, intermittent issue on both my staging store and live store in that when a user is registering for a customer account, that it will redirect the user to the homepage instead of returning them to the registration form with a success message telling the user to verify their email and it will send the user the account welcome email instead of the activation email.

I can see the newly registered customer in the Customers section also and as far as I can tell there hasn't been changes to any other settings that could change this behaviour.

This doesn't always happen but just wondering if anyone one has seen similar issues?
