Some registering users do not receive the registration message with confirmation link because their email boxes are full.  Not sure how to address this particular type of user problem beyond asking them to clear their mailboxes so that they can receive mail.

Testuser joins forum, checks “join group” buttons work, which they do.  Then puts up this test message to demonstrate that new users can join and post in a forum.
