Manila users can receive a forgotten password in e-mail by filling out the weblog's login page with an e-mail address and no password. If there's an account at that address, the password will be e-mailed.
Manila sends password reminders and other e-mail from the weblog's E-mail Confirmation Sender setting. To see this sender address, log in to the weblog, click thelink, then click the link.
The address should take the form username@domain, as in firstname.lastname@example.org. Although you can specify addresses in other forms with many e-mail clients, when receiving outgoing e-mail from Manila, a Windows 2000 server's outgoing SMTP service rejects addresses like these:
- "John Q. Public <email@example.com>"
- "Jane Q. Public firstname.lastname@example.org"
Because the problem can lock you out of a Manila weblog if you've lost the password, Manila webloggers ought to make sure it has been set correctly.
