Where would they have them from otherwise ?

Basically what F-ES Sitecore posted. The OP was unclear if this plain-text password was sent immediately after registration, or later on via some password reminder feature.

Either way it's not conclusive of plain text storage, although the latter would imply it is at best a reversible encryption as you have suggested.

While we are on the subject of one-way hash vs encrypted string, does it really matter either way? The main concern with storing user credentials is how to protect the source data, protect the source code (in terms of identifying how the password is hashed/encrypted), and restrict any method of being able to brute force login attempts (for example, locking accounts after X attempts, etc.).
