Thanks for reporting this bug. I think it used work till recently (I remember other users having confirmed their emails). Have no idea what happened. Will try to reproduce this bug.

Bug reproduced.

It is difficult to find the reason for this bug. Could it be that the used email address existed already on another account? Maybe the bug is produced similar to this one. I will implement the *temporary solution" of Waterfr Villa as soon as possible to get at least a readable error message.

@polarkernel Have you seen this : http://www.question2answer.org/qa/14046/could-not-send-reset-password-email?show=17991#a17991 ? There are some changes needed to be done in the host's control panel, which only you can access.

I re-tested this, and it seems that polarkernel has fixed this! Though it is not so that the email exists on another account, as I had tried this with a new test email and account yesterday and reproduced the bug.

So I will now mark this as status-completed.
