Is there a way to see/recover the passwords for my email accounts in Outlook?

I tried to directly log in to one of my main ISP accounts through their webmail portal, but it keeps telling me that my email log in is incorrect. Yet I am able to get my emails using my Outlook.

Ideally, someone could describe a process by which to export the passwords (kind of like what you do for Firefox) without having to get a 3rd party piece of software that I don't know & probably don't trust.

Thanks,

There is no function in Outlook that will allow you to export the passwords for the email accounts.

But Nirsoft's Mail PassView will display them for you instantly. And it's a completely free program. :)

Also, Nirsoft's utilities are totally legitimate programs. In fact, NirCmd is actually a part of ComboFix. If Nirsoft's utilities were not legitimate programs, I'm pretty sure that sUBs (the author of ComboFix) would not be using them. :thumbup2:

I've used Mail PassView several times for work and it works great. As a heads up though, your antivirus will probably pick it up as a threat (since it is a password revealer). So you may need to disable your AV program while you run the program.
