Perch Members Reset Password Form nukes MAMP's email sending ability(?)

I'm totally puzzled why this is happening, but the 'Perch Members' app seems to break MAMP's ability to send emails—specifically, as soon as I submit a 'reset password' form on the front-end. I wonder if my problem is related to this post too: http://forum.grabaperch.com/forum/03-24-2016-perch-members-reset-password-default-form-not-sending-email

Could you see any reason why this would happen? It has happened to me twice now in the last 24 hours, and I can't come to any other conclusion as to the cause.

I was only able to recover by completely re-installing my OS (macOS High Sierra), but it's broken again now that I've submitted a reset password form again via a page generated by the Members App.

Things I've tried, to recover:

  • Turn my computer off and on again—always the first test ;-)
  • Sending mail through postfix and mailtrap — nothing seems to get sent
  • Setting up a new database and install, with nothing else other than a config file and Perch core files
  • Uninstalling MAMP, then re-installing it
  • Upgrading MAMP (went from v4, to v5)

I've checked the mysql_error.log and see this:

I don't know of any way that could happen. It's always best to configure SMTP for sending email.
