|Email settings: $wgEmailAuthentication|
|Set to true to enable e-mail authentication (confirmation) for this wiki. Except for password reminder e-mails, e-mail functions only work for authenticated e-mail addresses.
|Introduced in version:||1.5.0|
|Removed in version:||still in use|
Set to true to enable e-mail authentication: all e-mail functions (except requesting a password reminder e-mail) only work for authenticated (confirmed) e-mail addresses. On account creation or when users change their passwords or on request, a confirmation token (link) with a limited life time is mailed to that unconfirmed e-mail address.
When the user returns with that token to the wiki, the e-mail address is confirmed.
The confirmation status ("Your e-mail address was authenticated on <date>") is always shown in the user e-mail preferences.
It also enables the other e-mail notification options.
If set to false then no e-mail notifications are enabled for the entire wiki.
