Remarks

Requests that Battle.net reset your password. This packet must be sent before logon.

This message requires an email address because Battle.net has to prove it's your account. Since this message must be sent before SID_LOGONRESPONSE, SID_LOGONRESPONSE2, or SID_AUTH_ACCOUNTLOGON, you must supply an e-mail address so Battle.net knows that you may have ownership to it.

This packet used to be named SID_AUTH_RECONNECTPROOF, however Blizzard never had it implemented, and so reused the packet ID for their email system.
