    Hey all,

    Of course my wife does not remember her password for her email account in OE.

    I am now replacing the drive in her machine, is there someway that I can go into the old drive and find the file that OE holds the account info. I already moved over the address book and the existing inbox/sent/other folders. But I need her password to connect to the ISP.



    Thanks in advance,

    Heeter

    Hey thanks for the help, D.

    That last link you posted did the trick in trial version. In trial version, it doesn't show the whole password, just the first, middle and last letter, the rest are stars, but it did show enough to jog the wife's memory about what her password was.



    Thanks again,


    Heeter
