Approve new users before they have forum access

I used PHPbb a few years back for a forum I had. I am not sure if it was version 2 or 3 but in that version I was able to enable a feature that allowed me to approve of a new user before they had access to the forum. I can't seem to find where that is. I see "Account Activation" in the user registration settings but the only options I have is disable and none. Is this feature still available in phpbb 3.0.7? ALso I noticed while signing up for this forum that there is an email activation for it. Is this a feature in phpbb 3 or is this a mod? Thanks for any help you can provide.

It's in all versions of phpBB 3. Set account activation to "Administrator" and you'll get emails for every registration with a link to activate each account.
