With so many passwords to remember nowadays, it’s easier to forget even some of the common ones. If you use a desktop email client like Outlook, Windows Mail, Thunderbird, etc. then the password is entered once and saved so you don’t have to re-enter it every time you open the application. It may be many months before you need to recall what that password was if you don’t log into web mail or have to enter it on another device. That time will eventually come though. So what do you do if you forgot your email password? Nirsoft makes a free and easy recovery tool to help you recover passwords from many common email clients. You can download it here. Note: Your anti-virus may detect this tool as malware because it is used to detect passwords. This is a false detection, it is safe to use.
