I did a clean install using go-daddy a few months ago.
Set myself as the admin.
Made my own avatars.
Added the logo to the top of the forum.
Changed the theme.
Then I started letting people know about the forum.
Now I'm receiving emails saying (I'm unable to register as a new member)
Thought it might be under Host Admin, Host Settings, Permissions Settings, Disable New Registrations: (I have this unchecked)
Is this correct?
I'm also getting emails from the 10 that did register saying (I can't post)
Here are my settings...

Is any of this correct?
Hope that some of this info helps.
Thanks YAF for the free forum and the help.
The box is unchecked.
I did see something.
SMTP Server Settings
SMTP User Name:
I don't have these setup. Would this be part of my problem?

Require Email Verification:
Yes. SMTP server is required.
GoDaddy SMTP server:
Forum Email: email@example.com
I set up this free email in my go-daddy account tonight and had them verify that it works.
Require Email Verification: is now checked.
SMTP Server Settings
SMTP Server: relay-hosting.secureserver.net
Godaddy said that this is correct.
Godaddy said to leave user name and password blank, because it's not required.
I've tried to register a new member on my forum and it says an email has been sent.
Which is does'nt.
Then i noticed this:
I made a copy.

I went to godaddy and logged into the SQL Server for the database and did screenshots of the 3 area's mentioned above.
Hopefully this is the info you need to help me.
Today it's asking me to reinstall.
Now i must go check to see if i can get what was posted before i lose everything.
There is very little I can do since GoDaddy won't upgrade the forum (despite my repeated requests and emails) to the latest version -- v1.9.3. No one has any interest in supporting old versions of the forum here. We've all moved on and frankly don't have the time to support code that is out of date and doesn't work as well.
I've read that the newer version is better.
I'll also let Go-Daddy know that they need to get witht the program.
I bed i did miss that.
