Forgot Password encrypted email system

    I really wish there were some examples explaining how to create a forgot
    password email link system when you encrypt a password in a database and use
    ASP.NET/C# preferably. Since the password is encrypted in SHA1, I can't
    just send a user their password by email. So I'm not sure the best way to
    accomplish a forgot password module when the password is encrypted in the
    database. I've tried to find info on this but have not found anything that
    really talks about this. Any help, links, or book suggestions would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    d.

  2. Generate a new, random password and send that (as well as save its hash to
    the db). In the e-mail, recommend that the user change their password at
    first login.
