Adding Customer Verification e-mail feature to an OpenCart solution

Thanks goes to Verido Software- og webløsninger. Now author's blog is sinked but fortunatly I've saved article in 2012. So I'm uploading that article just like I'm clone of wayback machine.

In this article I will cover how to quickly add customer registration confirmation e-mails containing a link to activate/approve the customer accounts in an OpenCart webshop themselves and begin shopping right away. This ultimately means that webshop administrators no longer have to approve all self-registering customer. A few additional layers of protection against Internet-bots and spam-bots are provided, e.g. Captcha during the registration and a verification e-mail with a one-time only activation link.
