Thanks for the detailed explanation Martijn. I'm glad you are considering this option
in the future releases as no admin intervention in password reset would be helpful.

That is currently not supported. Security wise it's better to have a person reset the
password because with a forgot password option, there is more room for an attacker to
intercept the password. That said, we might add this feature to upcoming releases.
About resetting the password, if you are using the OTP mode, the best is to clear the
users portal password. The next encrypted mail will then allow the user to setup a new
password for the his/her account. The previous messages can still be read because the
"Client secret" is still the same. If you delete the complete user, a new
"Client secret" will be created for the user. The passwords for the old PDF
encrypted messages (with OTP mode) can then no longer be retrieved because they were
created using a different "Client secret".
