Is this the reason there's no ability to have a password reset as well?

Hi JPS - have you considered having the mail server administered by Google Apps free single user edition? Then all you have to do is tell phpBB the google app smtp server address. Very easy.

Even mailing from php is normally possible from any shared host without the need of mail-server configuration.

I think subscribing and password resetting is a must for a forum.

An external forum (like disqus which was mentioned) would be another good solution although I'm not sure on costs.

Plus one on subscribing feature
