We solve the diffusion equation in the normal metal of ferromagnet-normal metal-ferromagnet (F-N-F) systems with non-collinear magnetizations. It is shown that the total conductance of the system in the presence of a magnetic field can be asymmetric with respect to time reversal. This asymmetry is associated with precession processes described by the imaginary part of the recently introduced mixing conductance.
