Re: [Jeffro_Tull] Encrypt or not?

Unless you are using a custom encryption algorithm, it is pretty much imposible to decrypt anything encrypted with the standard unix crypt() function. What I suggest doing is to go ahead and encrypt the password. When a user loses his/her password, you can reset it to a temporary random string and send it to the user via email. Once the user is logged in, they may change it to whatever they want.

(also pm'd you this message by accident...)
