Remarks

The PasswordRecovery control assists users who have forgotten their password. It enables a user to request an e-mail message containing either a new password or the password that is already associated with their user name.

Note   The PasswordRecovery control uses Internet e-mail services to send recovered or new passwords to users. There are inherent security risks with sending passwords via e-mail. You should determine whether these security risks are acceptable.

For more information on the PasswordRecovery control and other login controls, see Login ASP.NET Controls.

Example

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PasswordRecovery control. Handlers for the Load and UserLookupError events are defined. The HelpPageUrl property is set to the file recoveryHelp.aspx.
