You can't! If you choose to encrypt the passwords on the way in (with either MySQL's PASSWORD() or PHP's md5(), [as you should for most sites] it's a one-way encryption. Hence, you can't do a password reminder. You can reset the password though (make a new password, and send it them via email). You can also try emailing them the password when they originally sign up, so they *might* keep the email handy when they need it. Sorry, what you've done can't be undone.... you just need to figure out what to do now... Justin -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
