I am having an issue with a new feature in Umbraco v 7.5.6. I am testing the "Forgotten Password?" link when trying to log in to Umbaco, and when I request that a reset password link be sent to my email, I get the following error:
"Request password reset failed for email -------"
Any insight into this would be helpful. Otherwise I am enjoying the upgrade!
Anyone have insight into this !?
Yeah, I tried using my email address to get the password and I didn't see anything come through my email. Since I'm just learning, I just started all over again since I was not that far into my project the first time. :(
By the way, if you really can't get the password reset working, you could use this (assuming you have file system access) to reset the password on the root account: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/umbraco-admin-reset/
I do have file system access as I installed the site, and control the project. I just would like the functionality to work for end users, it isn't an access problem. I can log in to the back office. Just want to make that clear. I will explore your other options, but Umbraco Forms is sending email, so I don't believe it is an SMTP issue.
Be sure you have a correctly configured default sender email address in ~/config/umbracoSettings.config. Umbraco Forms allows you to specify a sender email separately, which might explain why it works there but not for other functionality.
Excellent, thank you very much Nicholas. I actually didn't have a from="" specified in my SMTP settings in my web.config which was causing the error. Because it didn't have that default email address, Umbraco was throwing an error. Works like a charm now!
