      Description

      Normally, user e-mail is shown scrambled (e.g. in the profile with default skin). However, when a password reset mail is sent using the "Forgot Password" feature, the following message is shown:

      An e-mail was sent to bla@blub.com. Please follow the instructions in that e-mail to complete the password reset procedure.

      This can be used e.g. to collect e-mail addresses for spamming.
