Guide Review - Mail PassView 1.38 - Email Password Recovery Tool

Forgetting email passwords is no big deal — the email client still knows it and continues to download mail flawlessly.

What, though, if you need your password to configure your email account in another program? You're out of luck, it seems: the original email program only shows "***" as your password. Fortunately, there's Mail PassView.

Mail PassView extracts and displays not only your password, but all the essential email account info (including your user name, the server name, account type and email address). It's a pity that this really useful tool does not work with all email clients, but if yours is one of those supported by Mail PassView you can safely forget your email password.
