I am having trouble accessing Outlook on a computer with a password protected "personal folder". While the exact reason for having a password protected folder is to ensure that others can not read / access the files in it, the owner of this computer reciently passed away and didn't leave any of his passwords behind. Is there any way to gain access to the personal folder or outlook as a whole?

I am running Microsoft Outlook 2002
Application name Outlook
Version 10.0
Build 2627

On Win XP home
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 5.1.2600 Build 2600

Any ideas or suggestions would be usful, thanks.

Hi LordSoren.
As much as I'd like to help you it's against forum rules to post a solution.
If it was done using Outlook's built-in security functions, it's very simple.
If it was done with 3rd party software, it gets much more difficult.
All I can say is "seek and yee shall find". Sorry, I do believe you.
