@Gargron What to do when I forget which e-mail address I used to signup with an account?

@xvilo I intend to make the forgotten password feature work with usernames as well as e-mails

@Gargron

How does password recovery by username make sense? You send out an email to an email address the user doesn't know 🤔

In this case the user can also just search for the sign-up mail in his mailboxes and figure out the mail account that way.

@sheogorath @Gargron I would have received it somewhere, I have multiple accounts and some bot accounts are something like [mail-mail]+[botname]@gmail.com

@xvilo I agree that my answer was a bit brainless by assuming everyone would

1. Keep mails forever
2. Run a mail client that allows them to search for an email across all mail accounts

It seems there was some point in time where it became so normal for me, that I did no longer expect that anyone would not do this differently. Sorry for that 😅
