Retrieve user password

Vote:
 
A customer would like the users on their web site to be able to retrieve their password by email (if forgotten). This is what they want: 1) User submits their email address 2) Look up username & password corresponding to the email address 3) Send the username & password to the email address They are using 4.51 with encrypted passwords. Is it possible to retrieve the password in clear text? I know this might not be the best thing to do for security reasons. The alternative solution would be to generate a new password for the user and email it to the user. Thanks in advance for any advice.

There is a module on EPiCode that does most of this for you. See http://www.coderesort.com/projects/epicode/wiki/EPiUserPlugins/About for more information. /Steve
