I am using SALT and HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile to store passwords in the database, but I have hit a snag.

How do I allow people to retreive their passwords?
It returns the encrypted version.

Encryption Code:
Dim strHash As String
strHash = System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile(password & salt, "SHA1")

How do reverse that so that I can send people their passwords ?
