Re: Lost email address ?

I am the administrator of the forum, and every once in a while I get a request, from a user to say that they can't get access to their previous email address and want a new one to be activated. The trouble is, they could be anybody saying that!

Re: Lost email address ?

But if they don't have access to their original email address, how can they link a new email address to the forums?

Re: Lost email address ?

In PHPBB3, you would need access to the original email, before you can start using the new one, this is for security reasons, so if I circumvented that system, it would be negating the security a little.

Yep, but verification initially goes to the original email address first, of course.
