The whole idea of encrypting a password with MD5 or crypt (which SLG uses) is that the password is hard - if not impossible - do decrypt. There is "no way" of retrieving a password. This secures passwords against stealing a user database, for example. The only way you can allow users to log in again is to generate a new password and send it to the email adress they specified on registration. Regards Manuel H.

I thought it might be something like that. Anyone have recommendations for something that is retrievable? Maybe something with a private key that an admin keeps seperate from the application? Thanks, Nick
