asp:PasswordRecovery - show password on screen

Hi
I'm developing an intranet where a lot of users dont have an email address so i need to do a password recovery by asking them their security question, and then reveal the password on screen

Is this possible ?
I'm really after the code or a tutorial that shows how to do this
i've looked and all i can find are the standard tutorials that email the password

Thanks

If they send the password via email, just change the script so that instead of sending the email it displays the result on the page.  Remember, the only way to show a users password again is if it's not stored in an encrypted format (i.e., MD5 hash).
