My forum is on a free host where the mail() function has been disabled. Some of my users lost there passwords and cannot receve them by email. I took a look in the db and saw that the pswrd was cripted.

Actually, you can change these passwords only manually. Encode some phrase with md5() and update the database.

For example, this PHP code will echo the MD5 value for the password "aha":

echo md5('aha');

Copy result to clipboard and update necessary record in database manually. That's all I can suggest for this case.
