Btw, it would be helpful for the password reset (means: 'lost password procedure'), if one could get the username sent - if someone has it forgotten, bad chance. The own email address is regularly known.

Currently, the username - email pair is checked before triggering a password reset via AccountModule. So you ment to (optionally) relax this check and sent the username back to the registered email address instead, right?

Especially in forum solutions like UBB Threads you have 2 possibilities:

  1. reset your password (if you know your usersame and email),
  2. get your username sent to your registered email address (in case you do not remember your exact username). I would a procedure like this. It would help if you can't remember your exact user name spelling for example.
