    I am trying to figure out what is going on.

    How many of you were able to go in and get a new password sent to you? I know how many I reset.

    I am concerned about how many are not getting automated replies and I am trying to figure out why.

    I was able to get a new password emailed to me and log on with it the first time around. Thanks for your hard work Jon!

    I typed in my e-mail and got a new password.Then I reset it to my original one.Very easy.Thank you Jon for striving to achieve the best.Maybe many members have fake e-mails like you said or have the mail options set that they receive the messages only when they pile up.That's my best guess.I'm not an expert in this.

    If they have the "accept email from admins" option turned off under their profile settings, could that be a source of the problem?

    But that would be for the new forum. They would not have had a chance to do that since they had not made it in yet.

    What if they had it turned off on the old forum?

    Was not able to log in and did not get E mail.
    Went to the I forgot page and was back in and reset in a minute or two.

    Jon............ Thank you for all of your hard work................

    I don't think it would have affected things here.

    Sorry for the double post. I was unable to view the first one then when I posted the second one they were both there.
    This verry well may have been operator error on my part.

    The tool does not seem to appear on my screen, so I am one of the problem cases.
    Would it help if I sent you some screen prints so you can see what is getting through and what isn't?

    I was one of the ones that couldn't get the forum to send me an email with my password reset. It didn't even show up in my spam folder the 1/2 dozen times I attempted it. Jon sorted me out so all is well.

    I got a new password this PM w/ no problem Jon...........automated response worked fine and was fast. Also the 5 tries and 15 minute wait period worked as well due my tries at old password.

    Hope that helps ...........stay safe !
