I’ve been testing a WordPress plug-in that sends first-time commenters an email asking them to verify their email address. Clicking the verification link in the email gets the comment approved immediately so you don’t have to wait for me to approve the comment.
When you submit your first comment, you’ll get a message on the blog saying that a verification email was sent. If you don’t get an email within a few minutes check your spam folder. If the email is not there, you most likely won’t be getting an email. You’ll have to wait for me to approve the comment. But the newest version I’ve tested has been working well so you should be getting verification emails.
