Getting Joomla Mailer to resend password

Post by FireFly9 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:47 pm

Is there a way to get the joomla mailer to resend an email with the changed password.

I have set up the user accounts manually, but at the time the joomla mailer wasn't set up properly so no emails went out. I thought that if I changed each password that joomla would remail the notification, but so far it hasn't and I'd like to know what I need to do to make it remail.

Thanks

I don't think it's possible for you (or your site) to resend the emails if your mailing settings weren't right in the first place. You could contact people who attempted to register before you fixed the problem and suggest that they use the "Forgot password" feature or you could delete their accounts, email the affected users, and ask them to re-create the accounts.

I can't think of any other alternatives, sorry.

That seems like a bug that should be addressed by the developers. In Wordpress if you re-generate a password, it will resend an email.
