Emailing a password is simply something you should never do; that's all there is to it.
I agree; it really shouldn't be necessary. As to Space's comment, sure, nobody really cares about what is said on this forum, but someone could use that password on other more important accounts (bank, paypal, etc.), assuming the person uses one password (which many of us do), and do some serious damage. Of course, it's a longshot, but it happens enough to be a legitimate concern, IMO.

I actually have seen this quite a few times. Still, that doesn't make it a good practice, just a common one.
