Reply-to Address for Password Recovery Email

May 18, 2012 at 4:05 PM

I recently changed the reply-to address in both the FBA Site Configuration and in Central Administration outboud email settings, but Password Recovery emails still show as coming from the old address.  Am I missing a configuration somewhere, or is this a bug?

I don't know of any bugs with it - the email address changes when I change the setting on the FBA Site Configuration screen. A couple of thoughts:

The reply to email address is saved per site, not site collection - so if you have multiple sub sites off of your site collection, you would have to access the FBA Site Configuration Screen for that specific site to change the email address. If the email has never been saved for that site, it will grab the reply to email address from the web-application email settings (also accessible from central admin, but from the web applications page).

Ah, that's it - sub-sites configured individually.  I changed the setting in the top-level site (the site collection), but not in the sub-site.  Thanks!.

That said, it might be a nice feature to be able to globally configure this so that changes get replicated to existing sub-sites.

Thanks again.
