Description

"If this is a registered email address for your account, then a password reset email will be sent. "

It says "this is a registered email address" but I didn't enter any email address, just the username. The wording here needs to be rephrased.

I chatted with @Nikerabbit, and he suggested, what I already thought, too. Instead of rephrasing the message, it would be a better solution to use two different messages for these two different cases (we already rephrased the message here).

I hope, that @Mhutti1 has the time and energy to do this, too, and commented on the change :]
