Just want to say this: Sending the password in plain text per mail is a HUGE security risk.

I hope the password gets hashed for the database. It would be even worse, if that was not the case.

In database, passwords are stored hashed.

Still, the password should not be sended on an insecure way like e-mail. Smile
