Alternative to "show password" in SmarterMail
Idea shared by Gabriele Maoret - December 22, 2017 at 3:19 AM
Proposed
I would suggest changing the password recovery procedure so that, having a secondary e-mail address for password recovery, it is possible, in addition to creating a new one, also to choose to send the OLD password, so as not to change it on all the devices.

In addition to that, it may be possible to add a "user default" parameter that can be named "default recovery e-mail" so that an administrator can set it (through domain o user propagation) to assist their users

Currently, if a user has a second email configured and they forget their password, an e-mail will be sent to the secondary email with a link to reset their password. This is preferred over sending the actual password itself. There could also be security concerns with giving domain admins the ability to propagate recovery emails to all users especially if the passwords were sent to the recovery address.

OK, I understand.

I think it would be very useful if you only have the possibility to send the current password to the recovery e-mail.
