To allow anonymous users to post without approval:
Goto Admin -> User Management -> Access Control
  Comments Section, Check "post comments without approval" for the Anonymous 
user, Click "Save permissions" at the bottom of the page.

Is the email confirmation the one that you're receiving for new users where 
you need to activate them?
If that's the case, you need to go to:
Admin -> User Management -> User Settings
  Under "User registration settings" set "Visitors can create accounts and no 
administrator approval is required." and click "Save configuration" at the 
bottom of the page.
