Email Sending validation doesn't occur when password reset is sent from the Users page

Suppose my site isn't configured to send emails. So, when a user tries to reset his password from the public login page, he gets the below error.

This is expected, but now, if I log in as an admin account, navigate under the Users page, and try to send the reset link for that user, I can see no validation error. The email doesn't get sent in real, but I can't see the error that my site isn't configured for sending emails.

I think this type of behaviour is kind of confusing for users. We should show that validation error in the admin panel as well.

I am now storing a transient flag "reset_password_email_failure" when the email sending fails, and then we check for this transient on the Users page to display the error message. The transient is set to expire in 60 seconds to ensure that the error message is only shown once after the email sending failure.
