    Hm. Is no one else experiencing this problem?

    No answer? Is no one else experiencing this? No one tried to retrieve a new password?
    My concern is that, if I update my clients' blogs, then they'd better not *ever* lose their passwords or request from WP a password change.

    I'm having no problems with requesting an emailed password. Not sure what's wrong with your set-up.

    Thanks, manx.
    So, for you, the password is not arriving unencrypted in Base64 code? That is, you can read the password?

    SOLVED
    On a hunch from reading one of the posts about line-endings, I installed the .tar version of 1.2.1 rather than the .zip file I'd tried earlier. Works fine; no glitches as of yet.

    Yeah, everything arrived fine for me, but I'm using the version that came from the .zip archive. ...weird...

    Now it's not okay. For some reason, I'm again getting encoded text when requesting that the password be emailed:
    Mime-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: BASE64
    TG9naW46IERpYW5lDQpQYXNzd29yZDogMjJmNTVhDQpodHRwOi8vZGlhbmV2LmNvbS9ibG9nL3dv

    Obviously, this is unworkable for us. Is there no one else who's having this problem?

    Okay; I've narrowed it down to this: only one of the blogs is having this problem, and it's on the same server as another that is *not* having this problem. Aside from anything I may have missed, this particular blog is one folder down from the site's root folder:
    /site.com/blog "root" -index.php is here/wordpress is here
    Will report back if I discover anything.

    If you lost your Yahoo email password, you will have to contact Yahoo.
