I found another post that helped me answer this question.  I had to read 
it through Google's cache because all of the links don't work into 
Typo3.org anymore.

This is what I did:

1.) Created two user groups, one called "Members" and the other called 
"Not Active"

2.) Set "Not Active" group to disabled.  This prevents the user from 
logging in.

3.) Add this line to the setup file: 
plugin.feadmin.fe_users.create.overrideValues.usergroup = XX
Replacing XX with the id of the usergroup "Not Active"

4.) If you want an email everytime a user signs up, add this line to 
your constants file: plugin.feadmin.fe_users.email = your_email_address

5.) When a new user signs up, the admin gets an email and changes the 
usergroup to "members" if they want the login to be active.

That's it!
