    I found a CD from my previous job that has all my email archived ... the problem, it's password protected. Since it's been about 2 years now, I can't remember my password. Is there a way to get around this? Is there a program which I can use to access my archived email?

    Thanks Khayman. Just realized I installed Thunderbird this time instead of Outlook. Now I have to install Outlook to get my files *sigh*

    [edit] Can you archive with Thunderbird? Can I get my .pst files through Thunderbird? [/edit]

    Yes, Thunderbird should import pst's fine (don't know if you still need the password though)

    Another option (and how I actually exported my mail from thunderbird back into Outlook) was to attach all the messages to a new message and send it to myself :)
    Then drag and drop the messages into my inbox... :D

    Not got it handy J, but if you look thru the menu options there should be an import somewhere.

    I would die a nasty death if I installed Firefox here.
