Password reset

In some reason I am not receiving password reset emails by just following the instruction. What do I do wrong?

Respectfully,

It could be two reasons:

1. Receiving emails from Administrators is not turned on.
2. Your email address is incorrect.

I can check your settings and send a password reset ....

Just checked, it is issue #1.
You must turn on "Receive emails from Administrators" before getting any password resets.

Awesome! Thank you Mike. I have checked that box, saved it and requested the reset again. Did not arrive just yet, probably takes time. Will wait a bit. Also I have verified the email address, it is correct.

I will help it along ...
Give me a few minutes, then "Log-Out" and then try logging back in ... you should get the prompt right away.

Sorry for trouble! Now the only device which was logged in shows "your password has expired" and offers me to change the password, but for that I need to enter the old one. So I am locked out.

The email still did is not here. It looks like something is wrong..

I've sent you a password reminder. It looks like you registered for the forum and tried to post before the account had been approved (spam control measure on this end). You should be good to go at this point, but let me know if any further issues.

I have my second account 100K_deux working (it is connected to a different email address), and tested a password reset with it - received a notification no problem.

However I am not able to get it on the original gmail account. I have checked different gmail folders, like social or commercial and nothing is there. Not sure where the issue is at this point.

So at this point I have an option to use the second account. Not that I am very active anyway.

Send me a PM with the email address and username of the old account and I will combine the two. Just confirm for me which username you want to keep.
