Outlook Express6: removing a/c withlost password

  immer 16:20 11 Jun 2007

I have several i/ds in Outlook Express, but one is redundent & I wish to remove it. The supposed password is not recognised. If I uninstall Outlook & reinstall can I get round the problem or is there another way. Also how do I save messages of active a/c's to reinstate them afterwards, please. (I have backup of addresses)
Is there a less drastic action ?

First-- Save all your emails- The easy way.

Create a folder on your hard drive.
Open up outlook and make half size.
Open up the folder you have created (half size)

Position both side by side
Highlight the outlook files you want to keep and drag them across to the new folder/You now have a permanent record of them, which when you click on will open outlook and run the Email.
You can export (File/export) the address book te same way (Use CSV option).

There is another option- Use the windows files and settings transfer wizard, navigate to your email setting and select that only. Follow the on screen instructions.

just had a thought. The used to be a program called siw.exe, which gave a complete breakdown of every part of your system.
On the main tree, thee is 'secret' which shows the passwords on your system.
