New User Approve allows a site administrator to approve a user before they are able to login to the site.
The New User Approve plugin uses the functions provided by WordPress to send email. Make sure your host is setup correctly to send email if this happens.
This is not a function of the plugin but of WordPress. WordPress provides the wp_mail_from and wp_mail_from_name filters to allow you to customize this. There are also a number of plugins that provide a setting to change this to your liking.
The password is generated again because, by default, the user will not be aware of their password. By generating a new password, the email that notifies the user can also give them the new password just like the email does when receiving your password on a regular WordPress install. At approval time, it is impossible to retrieve the user's password.
There is a filter available (new_user_approve_bypass_password_reset) to turn off this feature.
If you deactivate the plugin, their status doesn't matter. The status that the plugin uses is only used by the plugin. All users will be allowed to login as long as they have their username and passwords.
