    Thank you for your post, but I have a question:
    Isn’t there a way to make it automated? Like hitting a button on the users profile to send him a password reset mail.

      The customer can do it themselves (with the Login Module installed) by going to the Login Form. As for making it automatic on the back end you would need to check to see if a plugin has been developed for that.
