Can't reset password from old Community

I have tried to reset my password - put in my postmaster@xxxx.plusnet  email address - but I got nothing back via email.

 

So I had to creat a new account - ( just added an x to the end of my old accoung name ( mal08).
I'd like to get that back - any suggestions please.

Did you perhaps use any characters it didn't like in the password? Undecided

No - just a mix of upper and lower case letters and numbers

Re: Can't reset password from old Community

When you clicked on the link and logged in for the first time did you get any errors upto that point. I assume you didn't make any typos with the confirming the password entry?

Didn't change the email address at the same time? It won't like that I'd guess.

@mal08x, see if using delete within the password field helps, as I discovered here.   Undecided

@mal08x Have you tried the password reset again? If it errors on you this time let me know and I'll work around it and get in touch.
