Mail Me a Password, Cowboy!

Realizing that it would involve change to a core node, would it be a nice feature to have the login page offer to e-mail you your password if you've forgotten it? Maybe I'll look into that very thing. Forgetfully yours (at work with no cookie), -- chromatic

    The password mailer should now be in place. chromatic thanks for the code you sent me, I used some of it but used some of the stuff in Everything::Mail that made things a little simpler

      Looks pretty good. Breaking it off into a separate superdoc was a good idea. (What's funny is that I stole code from Everything::MAIL to write the silly thing.) One thing I did notice is that if you give an invalid username or e-mail address, there's no message saying so. Let me at the source and I'll fix it up again AND learn better superdoc practices.
        Forgot a $str.= in front of a line to take care of that... thanks for pointing that out though. I'll e-mail you my code if you're interested though. I yanked a lot of it from create a new user

    Yeah that is something we've talked about but keep forgetting to do...
      I'll look into it tomorrow. Shouldn't be too hard, unless you store the passwords using one-way encryption. :)
