There's no built in way to do that (for most pages anyway - v1.8 has a couple of options for the users list pages).

But you can make an override plugin that overrides the qa_content_prepare function. It would be something along the lines of:

function qa_content_prepare($voting = false, $categoryids = null)
    $qa_content = qa_content_prepare_base($voting, $categoryids);
    $confirmed = qa_get_logged_in_flags() & QA_USER_FLAGS_EMAIL_CONFIRMED;

    // hide 'unanswered' page for unconfirmed users
    if (!$confirmed) {
    // repeat for any other menu items

    return $qa_content;

@link2admission Start with the plugin documentation here: http://docs.question2answer.org/plugins/
That page gives you the basics on what you need to do for any plugin. Then look at the Overrides link I provided for how to do overrides specifically.
