Forgotten password for Outlook email account

  exdragon 19:30 10 May 2007

Not having much luck today, am I!

Some time ago I set up another email address (BT internet, POP3 & SMTP both exactly the same as another emmail address I use). Unfortunately, I've forgotten the password - I can't believe it's the only thing I've never entered into my password manager.

Is there any way of getting at it? I've tried putting the name into Yahoo mail 'Forgotten your password, you idiot?' screen together with my date of birth, but it says it can't find me. I've happily been using it to send emails this morning but now I want to retrieve something from webmail - and can't.

Any help appreciated!

Hi there - no luck, all it showed was an Outlook Express one (which I no longer use) and the password for one of my other autocomplete addresses.

Thanks anyway

That's a very handy one, isn't it? Unfortunately, I can't find what I'm looking for. I'll bookmark it, though.

Because of the way it works, it may trigger a warning from your anti-spyware program.
Delete after recovering your password(s).

No joy again, I'm afraid. I gave in and emailed BT who say if I give them a number and suitable time, they'll ring me and talk me through it.

Thanks everyone
