Lost Password in Outlook Express

Postby Ian Goodman » Sun Jul 09, 2017 6:54 am

Is is possible to find the password in outlook express?
I have a friend who cannot remember his password .
In Mozilla Thunderbird you can find this easily not only that you can use Moz Backup tom backup your emails you can restore them as well on a new build.
I am trying to get my friend onto Mozilla Thunderbird.

For security reasons you can no longer transfer email accounts from Outlook Express using each account's iaf file.

However, your email account provider should have some kind of forgotten password process that you can follow.

On the other hand, Mail PassView claims to be able to recover Outlook Express passwords, I haven't tried this so can't vouch for it, but in your situation, if all else failed I'd probably give it a go.

Hi John
Many thanks for your information and the link to the recovery software I will give this a try.

Update:
On testing I found that Mail PassView worked flawlessly on my computer recovering all relevant account details on MS Outlook, Outlook Express, and Windows Mail

For each email account, the following fields are displayed: Account Name, Application, Email, Server, Server Type (POP3/IMAP/SMTP), User Name, and the Password.

I've no doubt that the software works equally well on all of the email clients that it claims
  • Outlook Express
  • Microsoft Outlook 2000 (POP3 and SMTP Accounts only)
  • Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003/2007/2010/2013/2016 (POP3, IMAP, HTTP and SMTP Accounts)
  • Windows Mail
  • Windows Live Mail
  • IncrediMail
  • Eudora
  • Netscape 6.x/7.x (If the password is not encrypted with master password)
  • Mozilla Thunderbird (If the password is not encrypted with master password)
  • Group Mail Free
  • Yahoo! Mail - If the password is saved in Yahoo! Messenger application.
  • Hotmail/MSN mail - If the password is saved in MSN/Windows/Live Messenger application.
  • Gmail - If the password is saved by Gmail Notifier application, Google Desktop, or by Google Talk

An excellent 'does what it says on the tin' application that I have no hesitation in recommending.
