Cant Reset Password (need Mod help)

I've been a member here for a while but I forgot my password to my original account. I keep trying to reset the password but I never receive an email to reset it. I've tried resetting the password on this account and it worked (this email is .edu and the other is from mail.com).

Can a mod help me out?

I've merged this account with your original one, and have reset your password.

I sent you an email with the new password.

Please let me know if this works for you now.
