Let's see what Aleksandar was fixing today.
My findings, tips & tricks related to computers, internet, programming and other stuff I was working with.

Mail Password Recovery

Mail Password Recovery allows you to recover your email password for any POP3 account, as long as it is stored in an email program on your computer.
You just need to temporarily change the settings in your email program, so that it connects to Mail Password Recovery instead, and your password will be revealed. Mail Password Recovery works by emulating a local POP3 server, your email program hands over the password when it connects, and Mail Password Recovery will show it to you. Only works with email accounts/passwords that have the login information stored in your email program (Outlook Express, Eudora, The Bat! etc.) Program can only recover the passwords that are stored on your computer.

Program does NOT recover passwords from web based email accounts such as Hotmail, Yahoo, MSN, AOL etc.

Usage instruction:
- Open your Email Client (like Outlook Exppress)
- Open account properties
- Write down current incoming POP3 server
- Change this into
- Repeat this for all necessary accounts
- Confirm changes
- Go online (if neccessary)
- Send/Receive email
  (passwords will appear in this window)
- Change back incoming POP3 server(s)
- Close this program ;-)
