Using bulk password reset, the e-mail address of the TWikiGuest account is not expanded.

The message that is generated is:

A new system-generated password for guest (wikiname MainTWikiGuest? ) has been sent to %_P_peter09@thoeny.org_P_%

Note also that the wikiname is not correct - whatever is generating it fails to insert the literal period between "Main" and "TWikiGuest"

Please explain; do you have an email address set locally for the TWikiGuest account? If not, default behaviour will be applied and the mail will be sent to WIKIWEBMASTER. Or are you saying the that mail contains the string peter09@thoenyNOSPAM.org? Or that the string %_P_peter09@thoeny.org_P_%? Please detail the steps followed to reach the error, and detail expected versus actual behaviour, so we can have a chance of fixing this if it is wrong. - CC

The error was found when doing bulk mail reset. However that was only where it apeared. The problem cold have shown up in many other palces.

The address set in the record TWikiGuest is that from SVN:

% META:FIELD {name="Email" attributes="" title="Email" value="%_P_peter09@thoeny.org_P_%"} %

(check raw of this in case its not displaying what I pasted in)

When the bulk reset was run the notification screen displayd that string liteeraly and it was also used in the "To:" submitted to sendmail.

The value of WIkiWEBASTER was set approrpriately in TWikiPreferences

Yeah, the email address in the TWikiGuest topic is obviously wrong. Fixed. SVN 4437 - CC
