Your members registration - when you turn on "Email Verification" will not store in DB_USERS. It will store as encoded format in DB_NEW_USERS.
There's no flaw here. Admin Approval doesn't matter.
Thing is your phpmailer must be verified prior to using that. Check what went wrong if email is not sent. IF email is sent, the only way to get that registered user move his info from DB_NEW_USERS to DB_USERS. If Admin approval is turned on, then, it is in "inactive" status until Admin approves it. That you can see in Members Administration, but not before the email is validated.
Go to email templates, shut it down. Then run test again.
