Quick Tip: Recover someone’s forgotten Outlook password

Do you have the need to login to webmail but your user can’t remember their email password?

If you use MailPassView from NirSoft, it will look in the registry and dump out in plaintext the password Outlook uses to login to the mail server.

Be aware that some antivirus software flags it as a false positive, but that’s because in the past it’s been used in malware to steal credentials; there is nothing inherently malicious about it. If it’s critical that you recover the password without resetting it, you may want to disable the computer’s antivirus momentarily to run this app.
