Forgot Password on login

In cases where a user has forgotten their own password and would like to reset it, but are unable to log in to do so, they can use the ‘Forgot Password’ functionality on the log in page.

Upon entering a user name and selecting the forgot password function, MEX will send an email assigned to the username entered with a prompt to reset the account password. Please note, an email address assigned to the user account is required for this feature to work. An email address can be assigned from the Contact details page referenced above, under the details tab.
