Have several quesitons about membership plugin

I have a couple questions as i'm trying to implement the membership plugin:

1) Is it possible to send an email to someone when a new user joins? I see that it's possible to "ping" something, but I need it to send an email

2) I have a subscription that is free, but the registration completed page is not redirecting properly... it just stays on the registration page and says "you currently have a subscription for... " with a coupon code underneath it.
