I am looking for a plugin like "Remove Email Verification" for Buddypress and cant find on

I have been racking my head for over 24 hours trying to figure out how to get a process like "Remove Email Verification" plugin would provide for Buddypress. I cannot get email verification to work (believe me I have tried!!) so I thought I can just remove that process so users can start registering and using the site. However...

I cannot find a solution with any of the plugins in WPMUDEV. "Remove Email Verification" is only for Muiltisite and though I can install it, that does not work. Sooooo, I am frustrated. Any suggestions? I have tried outside plugins (WP-Mail-SMTP, Configure SMTP) but was hoping for a solution here since I am investing to use these plugins. I want to use what I am investing in, ya know?
