Which message do they get after they try to send a new password? Did they
confirm their E-mail address? Do they have their E-mail address properly set in
the database? Check the table: is user_new_password updated after they send the
E-mail? Is there some field which is different between the old and the new
records (except for these which should be different between accounts, e.g.
user_id, user_name, user_password, user_email, etc.).
