    My experience over the years has been that pretty much ANYTHING you can
do in a browser, you can do in CURL- but it can be very difficult to see
what browser's are doing (in partnership with the servr) sometimes.

  Does your "request new passwd" function work in a browser? if yes, then
you will have to dig deeper to see what the client-side request is actually
communicating to the server with.... this will mean you have to look at
everything in the browser HTML between the <form> tags and sending that up
to your vendor's site.
