Look in the spam defense logs. If his IP or email has a bad score, even if HE is human… his IP or email may have been flagged as bad. You would need to whitelist him in order to register. 

Thank you @Randy Calvert! I looked in the defense log, I can see his four attempts to register over 2 days, and four times he got a response "4", however neither his email nor his IP is recognized by sites like https://cleantalk.org/blacklists

I wish I had more info as to why the response "4" was returned? 

How can I whitelist a user so they can register?

Maybe the email/IP aren't on Cleantalk but on another list like https://www.stopforumspam.com/

IPS uses multiple lists to check, and even their own list based on all IPS communities. They won't share how they return a 4 response though, or (real) spammers would have an easier way bypassing their checks.

ACP > Members > CONTENT MODERATION > Spam Prevention > Spam Defense Whitelist (button top-right).

 

IPS should probably add the word whitelist to return this page in ACP's live search as currently it's not included.

Ok I understand, thank you for explaining that.

Thank you! And yes you're right as I did search in ACP before asking here because I couldn't find it.
