Default Forgot password?

Does anyone have any suggestions for creating a forgot password link/solution for thephile. What might be the best way to accomplish this, and how do you get around the encrypted password in the database, when sending a user his or her password.

Thanks,
d.

I haven't tried to implement this feature yet. I would first try to see if decription is possible to get back the text password user used. If that doesn't work then, one way could be to overwrite the binary password in the database with the binary of some know text and then send that known text to the user. Eg. user name is 'bob' and reset database password with binary of 'bob101'(say) and send 'bob101' to user.

Thanks
