I've imported a lot of messages from a usenet newsgroup and FUDForum has created the users, but with which password?
Obviously in newsgroup nobody use his real email address and so also these are imported wrong and now they cannot ask back the actual FUD password.

Any suggest?

There is nothing FUDforum can do if the e-mail addresses are wrong. You as admin will have to fix them manually. Alternatively, merge "fake" accounts with real accounts (see Merge Users ACP).

Once the e-mail addresses are fixed, users can use the "reset password" function to gain access to their accounts.

Best of luck!

The question is another.
If I usually write in usenet usergroup by Google Groups with username="Johnny Begood" and password "rockndroll", then in FUDF I see the username "Johnny Begood".
Can I login with a username with a space in middle?
And then, what which password? I don't want to think that Google sends my password with my posts for the usenet.
So FUD Forum has a username (with a space) and none password. It's right?

I've personally verified that is it.
I can login using a login name with a space in the middle but there are no password in the profile.
So first I requested the reset of password and then I login in forum with this new password.
A bit complicated, but it is funcional.
