Does changing email address still generate new password?

    I know in UBB, if you change your registered email address, a new password is generated and emailed to the new address, for verification. I just changed my email address here and that didn't seem to happen, and I can still post. Does vBulletin not do this?
    Just wondering, or did it change my password behind my back and put it in my cookie, so I'll be fine until I try to post from home? [​IMG]
    Thanks... KJP

    You can change your email address in vBulletin without having to have a new password generated. You can always change your password by clicking on the "Lost Your Password?" link at the bottom of any forum page and you can reset it from there.

    Well according to vBulletin support, when you change your e-mail, this is what happens.

    Well, since I don't have email verification turned on, nor do I plan to in the future, that is a moot point. So as vBulletin is being used on HTF the answer is no you will not get another password emailed to you if you change your email address.
