I want to reset the password for a member on my site. I have database access so I changed the Email field in the Member table to my email address, and clicked the "I've lost my password" link on the admin page. The site told me that a reset link has been sent to my email address, but I never received the email. Do I have to change the email address in another table or do something else in order for my site to recognize that an account exists for my email address?

Edit: V2.4.1

Oh whoops thought by database access you meant you had an admin account that you could login with - these might help
