- Have an ID with a known password.
- Go to Files - Tools - User IDs - More Options. Click on "Change name" and give the name of the user who has lost/forgot password.
- You will lose all your certificates.
- After this you have to certify the ID file the user had.
The "new" ID will have a different private/public key pair than the "old" ID. Therefore, the user will not be able to read encrypted documents, like encrypted mail he received earlier.
