    I'm setting up Password Recovery, but it doesn't work.

    I set:

    settings>advanced>notifications>profiles - Default profile

    - defaultSenderEmailAddress: myEmail

    - host:

    - port: 465

    - useAuthentication - not checked

    - username: username/email from gmail acc

    - password: mypassword

    - useSSL - checked

    - profileName: Default

    - senderType: Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.Notifications.Smtp.SmtpSender

    - profileType: smtp

    settings>advanced>security>membership providers>default - parameters:

    - enablePasswordRecovery - true

    - requiresQuestionAndAnswer - false

    - recoveryMailAddress - my mail

    settings>advanced>system>SMTP(Email Settings)

    - host:

    - port: 465

    - username: username/email from gmail acc

    - password: mypassword

    - domain:

    - deliveryMethod: Network

    - enableSSL: checked

    - defaultSenderEmailAddress: myEmail


    Maybe I skipped something that I also must set?


    Thanks in advance

    Hi Michal,

    Can you please go to Administration » Settings » Advanced » Security » Membership providers » Default » Parameters then click enablePasswordReset. Please make sure that the Value field is set to false and save the changes. Then restart the application in order for the changes to take effect.

    Please also refer to the below documentation article for more details on how to configure password recovery:
