How Does the Email Template Work
You can use Forgot Password Email template to send a personalized automated email to members who forget their passwords. When members are on the log in page, they have the option to click on the Forgot Password link. This link will direct the member to submit his/her email. This action automatically generates a Forgot Password Email from the template and sends it to the member. Keep in mind, that when you include SmartTags in the email template, it will be personalized to the member. See the directions below to further customize the subject or the body or use as it is now.
