Default passowrd recovery

hi all....
I have configured my smtp and I used the password recovery control to have my password sent to me. What I got was "daW3w$2*{231Oza1Aj" which definitely was NOT my password...and it didnot work to log in using that password.
I've used non-reversible hash method to encrypt the password.Is there a way to get a clear text password??
plz help....

Hi there,

By default, passwords are stored as hashes in the database in an ASP.NET 2 app. Hashing is different from encrypting: the latter is reversible, the former isn't.

So, instead of your clear text password, you get a new one instead that looks a little odd. There is no way to retrieve the old password from the hash again.

You can configure your application for clear text passwords through the web.config. However, that won't affect existing passwords.

 You have to give client id of dropdown box instead of server side id. it might be like

var MeetingList = document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1 _ddlMeeting_Type_Name");

or you can get client id of control in source file of page.
