I have been building a site, using the forum module as my primary method of managing members. We have just decided to drop the forum for a number of reasons and now need to find a membership solution. I have looked at the membership module here:
It looks very good and people seem to have good things to say about it, however I have this use case:

-a potential member signs up, I would like to have an email sent to them with a link (to verify email address) but once verified I would like to have the site admin notified and require that the new member be human verified (we have some requirements that must be met for our clients) before gaining access to the member sections of the site?

The Ecommerce module has some similar features in regards to membership, so I wonder if anyone can tell me if I can accomplish what I need with just the Ecommerce module, or if I need to also use the Membership module.. and if so will these 2 work together happily??
