    Lost password in Outlook (2002)

    Hi!
    I've got an emailaccount (POP3) that works just perfect. But I have forgotten the password. Now, Outlook remembers the password, but the trouble is - what if I need to set up the account once more?
    I've found a couple of tools on the net who claims they can do the job. One emulate an email-server and tells you what are being sent. Nice, but it costs $. No big deal, but if anybody of you experts knew a way to do the trick I would defenetely appreciate that.

    Call the ISP and see if they can give it to you or a new password.

    Talk about timing (if it works)! From the latest Lockergnome Windows Digest:
    <hr> Asterisk Key v5.5 [275k] W9x/2k/XP FREE

    http://www.lostpassword.com/asterisk.htm

    {Appear password!} You get in the habit of letting cookies "remember" your login information so you don't have to recall and type it each time you go to a Web site requiring a login. Eventually, you forget the password and you find yourself needing to know what the password is, hidden behind those ***** (or other symbols) hiding it. Asterisk Key unlocks the code and translates the ***** into the password you selected for the login. I tested it by going to Yahoo! mail and then hitting "Recover" in the Asterisk Key dialog box and it "Open Sesame"d the password. It worked again when I tried it at myschoolonline.com. "Getting the code" made me feel like MacGyver or a hacker (gasp!). Those who share a computer with others may not want this program, as others may access your secret codes. [Meryl] <hr>
    In theory, this should decypher your password, displayed as asterisks, where you define your incoming mail server. If you try it, let us know the results.

    Thanks! It works great in Outlook too. Just remember to have the account-window open.
