Integrating membership registations with buddypress


I have set up my two membership levels and created a registration page…

I get a message as admin to say a new user is registered etc, and the new user also gets an email.

However when I try to login to buddypress I get an error saying the account has not been verified.

How can I get the membership registration process to work with buddypress and issue a verification number? Or any other ideas welcome.
