Using Email Address as username fails on Recovery Password

Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

When you create an user with an Email address as username, let me say and put as User's Email Address, when you go to "Lost Password" it asks for "Username or E-mail", if you type it will fail saying: "ERROR: There is no user registered with that email address." What it is technically true, but it is an Username, so I must be allowed to Recover my Password.

The defect is that, if the username it looks like an email address, WordPress will only check if the string it is a registered email address in the Blog, is not checking if an user with an username like this exists.

Hi xomero, thanks for the report!

Unfortunately, it looks like this is actually a duplicate of #22367, if you'd like to join the discussion over there.
