There are plenty of "hacks" available, or you can set "User Activation" to none.

In the General Admin > Configuration of your Administration Panel set the Enable account activation to None or Admin.

    (None) means that the user does not have to activate their account and they can sign in as soon as they are done registering.
    (User) Means that once they are done registering they will need to check their email accounts for a message to activate their account.
    (Admin) Means that the Administrator has to activate their account for them so when someone signs up it sends you an email and you then have to manually activate each account.


Be sure to disable also User email via board.

Well the answer you want is, yes, PHP mail() function is disabled in Polarhome. You can't you PHP to send emails with it.

Try some hack (I had found one but Denis decided to prune the forums so it's gone now) that will disable the email that phpBB tries to send and you get this error. (you get this error because even if user activation is off, phpBB tries to send a "welcome to x forum" email anyway)
