Hi everybody,

I try to implement the function recover email. I get the email with link for recover passsword, like this: http://localhost:41787/Account/ResetPassword?rt=cgUuxE3xpVnjkQEkpif73Q2[^] ,

And i also see that in the datbase there isa PasswordVerificationToken

But if I past the link in the browser I get this error:

An error occurred while processing your request.

THis is my method:

// POST: /Account/ForgotPassword
        public async Task<ActionResult> ForgotPassword(ForgotPasswordViewModel model)
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
                var user = await UserManager.FindByNameAsync(model.Email);
                MembershipUser userEmail;

                using (var context = new LolaBikeContext())
         var foundUserName = (from u in context.userProfiles
                              where u.Email == model.Email
                              select u.UserName).FirstOrDefault();
         if (foundUserName != null)
            userEmail = Membership.GetUser(foundUserName.ToString());
            user = null;
      if (user != null)
         // Generae password token that will be used in the email link to authenticate user
         var token = WebSecurity.GeneratePasswordResetToken(user.UserName);
         // Generate the html link sent via email
         string resetLink = "<a href='"
            + Url.Action("ResetPassword", "Account", new { rt = token }, "http") 
            + "'>Reset Password Link</a>";
         // Email stuff
         string subject = "Reset your password for";
         string body = "You link: " + resetLink;
         string from = "email";
         MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, model.Email);
         message.Subject = subject;
         message.Body = body;
         SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient
            Host = "",
            Port = portnumber,
            EnableSsl = false,
            UseDefaultCredentials = false,
            Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password"),
            DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network
         // Attempt to send the email
         catch (Exception e)
            ModelState.AddModelError("", "Issue sending email: " + e.Message);

                return View("ForgotPasswordConfirmation");
               //TempData["Message"] = "User Not exist.";

            // If we got this far, something failed, redisplay form
            return View(model);

Thank you
