Message 76592 - Posted: 7 Nov 2023, 23:01:03 UTC

I removed my milkyway project and tried to login as existing user, but i could not remember my password.
So i entered my email address in the dialog for "Forgot your password", but it will not take my email address,
it always says
EMAIL failed Can't send email to  ...<my email> 

yeh, i double checked the spelling as it's a globally common error
I wish the error message said why it can't send me email
Also, i am using the
https://milkyway-new.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/

project address
I also, just for grins, tried logging in as anew user but then it says my email is already in use.
TIA

Reading your misspelled subject, I wondered if you're on the site you think your on :)
Staying on topic, Milkyway seems to use a filtering service that won't allow certain email domains.
Your email in use was probably accepted when they weren't using a filter.
The filter isn't from this recent server update.
Mostly the disposable email types are blocked.

To get on this board, aren't you using the email and password for the account?

The "Forgot Password?" function is not working right now.
It is on the list of known issues for the server that I am trying to fix.
