New password reset feature

MultiSite Manager has a new password reset feature that allows you to reset a password using the login screen’s Forgot password option, which will send a password reset email to the email address supplied. This means all MultiSite Manager user accounts must include the user’s email address. Email addresses can be added to any user by the administrator using the Welcome > User account option. A user can add an email address to their own account using the Welcome > Edit Account option. When a user without an email address logs on, they will be prompted to add an email address to their account.

As part of this new feature, we have simplified the email server setup. The email server is no longer set up under the Report tab > Global Email Report dialog or the Site Alerts > Site Email Report dialog. It is now only set up under the Welcome > Email server settings option that is available for administrators. If an email server has not been set up, the administrator will be prompted to set it up when they log in.
