    In my computer running XP-Pro OE 6 is configured for my hotmail account.
    I have forgotten my password and also the answer to my hint question.
    Is it possible to retrieve the password from OE?
    I have no problem connecting to my hotmail account thru OE but unable to get
    it from elsewhere through the web.
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance,

    This is a FREE, small, very handy password retrieval utility. It does
    work in XP, I just went to Tools / Accounts in OE and tried it out. Of
    course, a password needs to have been saved and hidden behind a line of
    asterisks for the application to be able to read it.

    Tip for the future: pick a better hint question! ;-)

    Thanks for the help.
    I downloaded a free trial version from
    and applied it to OE .
    Being a trial version it would decode only the first 3 letters of the
    password that however was enough to "guess " the password.

    Thanks all of you
