    I was just coding right this very second, a "forgot password" code.. and I came to the "SELECT password.." and I thought "hey man, this wont work" as I md5 my passwords on db entry..

    So the email that will be sent out will make no sense to the user who has forgot their password.

    So how does everyone does it? Do they store a plain text version in the database? I know you cannot decrypt a md5'd string.

    Thanks in advance

    you can have a security question and if they get it right, then they give you a new password and you reset it...
    or, you can just reset their password to something random and then email it to them, then they can login and reset it to what they want it as...
