I think reset password would give them the means to have another password to use.
 and going through the trouble to reset the password will teach them a lesson to save it  so they don't have the same problem again
I speak from experience.. lol

The reason I'm suggesting the change in language is that in some cases, the system asks people to reset their password (or click on "forgot password" and give them the chance to reset) when they actually have no password yet in the first place. Using the ambiguous "create new password" would seem to avoid the confusion, since it applies in either case.

It's really the same place. I'm just suggesting a different way of getting there since she was having trouble the first way. I think there are still language problems related to creating or resetting passwords (and joining groups, etc. - the whole area Mark is working on). While we're at it, I would suggest using the term "create new password" as a substitute for either "reset password" or "create password." I think it encompasses both.

2 areas to reset password?
In my opinion there should be only one area to reset a password. 
These members are having a hard enough time trying to figure out how to join a group.
so why give them more areas to click on.
Possibly  a drop down (help ) window can be added  next to reset password to read first to find out
what the problem may be and if that doesn't work then reset password.... Just saying.

 In fact maybe Drop down help windows  is what is needed for members   before  they join a group and in groups on tools they
are permitted to use. 
Would save moderators a lot of explaining and save Mark a lot of administrative  instructions  to  mods and the members directly.

The problem seems to be that one or two members are not receiving any emails at all from Groups.io. They've checked their spam folders, they've tried everything.

Janice, how it works in Yahoo Groups is the digest has X number of messages.  At the top when you first open the digest message, it has what I call an Index listing all of the messages that are consolidated in that message.  It is number 1, 2, 3, etc. and shows the subject of each message.  You click that active link and it takes you directly to that message.  You can then scroll back up, click another one, etc.  Each of those messages provide the various options of reply, reply via web post, etc.

If she happened to have ever used that same password anywhere else she should go immediately and change it in all those places. This is a danger of using the same password for more than one account - exposure of one exposes them all.

I hate to think the password is something like a pets name, used for everything from email to banking. I'm a firm believer in using something like Password Safe or Last Pass to generate a unique random password for each account you hold.

The password reset link should probably expire after 30 minutes to an hour. That gives it time in case the email is slow but limits the amount of damage it can do if someone else gets it somehow. If the real user doesn't have time after generating the password reset to use it, that user can always generate a new password reset link later.
