Users of MailEnable 5 and 6 can resolve the issue by upgrading to version 5.53 or 6.03 or later. Alternatively, and for version 4 users, the following fix can be applied:
1) Open the ForgottenPassword.aspx file in Notepad. This file is in the Mail Enable\bin\NETWebMail\Mondo\lang\[language] folders in version 4 and in Mail Enable\bin\NETWebMail\Mondo\lang\sys in version 5 and 6.
2) Locate and remove the following line, then save the file: document.getElementById(“txtUsername”).value = ‘<%= Request.Item(“Username”) %>’;
