  • If the member has forgotten their User Name (email address), a Groupsite Manager can provide this information to the member. Managers can view a member's email from the member's profile (when contact information is shared), or any time from the "Manage Members" area of the Groupsite.

Once the member verifies the new email address (from a verification link sent to that email), they can delete the old email address for their profile. Here's an FAQ that shows how:
