When working with forms-based authentication, you can configure password retrieval, so that users who forgot their passwords can receive them in an email message.
NOTE:If you are working with claims-based authentication, you cannot configure password retrieval.
To do so:
IMPORTANT: You must not set the enablePasswordRetrieval property to true when the enablePasswordReset is also set to true. The default passwordFormat for the default membership provider is Hashed. Since hashed passwords cannot be retrieved, Sitefinity CMS has to reset the password and send a new one. If you want to retrieve the current password, you must set the passwordFormat Encrypted or Clear. For more informationabout the password format, see Administration: Set password requirements.
