    1. Create a regular form that accepts an e-mail address as input<BR>2. Have the form post to an ASP page (E.g. email.asp)<BR>3. Have the email.asp page look at the forms collection for the field that contains the user&#039s e-mail address<BR>4. Have it compare it to the database which contains the e-mail addresses and associated passwords<BR>5. Use CDONTS and the Microsoft SMTP service to compose and send a message to the user which includes their password
