User password retrieval email text

Hi,

Can anyone tell me where the text of emails such as the 'forgotten password' one comes from?  I mean the one that starts

"A request was just submitted to send your <sitename> password for the User <useremail>....."

I can't find a file with this text in it, but I may not be looking in the right place(s)!!

Thanks.

All of these types of template files are located under [site path]\Data\MessageTemplates. The particular ones you are looking for are:

  • en-US-HashedPasswordEmailMessage.config
  • en-US-PasswordEmailMessage.config

Re: User password retrieval email text - Follow up Q

Hi again,

I have a follow-up question on this.  How can I get simple html into the email body?  It is just rendering as raw html if I enter it as normal.  I've tried replacing < and > with &lt; and &gt; respectively (which works for screen rendered content via resource files) but that is rendered as-is too.

Is this possible?

Hi Mike,

Add the following to your user.config and then 'touch' the web.config.

<add key="UseHtmlBodyInPasswordRecoveryEmail" value="true" />

HTH,

Re: User password retrieval email text

Thanks Joe!

Yes, that's exactly what I needed. 

Is there an exhaustive list of config keys somewhere in the documentation? It would be a great help - for example I would have been able to spot that this was a configurable option if I'd been able to look through such a list.

Thanks again,

 

Mike
