I get an error when I click "lost password" on my Word Press site.

The error is...
The email could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function.

I've read it may be turned off for security. Is there a best practices work around for this?

Hello, Sorry to hear you are having issues with your WordPress lost password function. I was able to install a test WordPress installation on a test folder and the function worked correctly with no error. This means the issue is limited to your specific WordPress installation. You will want to check out our article on common troubleshooting steps for WordPress to see if they help correct the issue. Kindest Regards, Scott M
