Hi,

I use Ontrack Email recovey Tool or Professional alot, for corruption & password protection issues. It's worth a shot.

I have had this problem in the past, it is possible (but for some reason not always) to recover the password but it depends which version of Outlook the PST file was from. Usually Windows stores the password locally in the Registry.

HKU\<SID(Security Identifier)>\Softwware\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Windows Messaging sub system\Profiles \<PROFILE NAME>9375CFF0413111d3B88A0010104B2A6676\<SUB KEY>\ POP3 (or IMAP or HTTP) Pasword.

The unicode contained within these values will link to sub keys found elsewhere in the protected registry, the names will correspond to the unicode data.

Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider\ <SID>\ Data\Identification\Outlook Account Manager Passwords\<SUB KEY> (Corresponds to the previous Unicode Data)

However this will not be visible unless a proprietary software tool such as Access Data Registry Viewer (Trial version can be downloaded). The password will be revealed in unicode. This can be 'translated' by a decoder.

Best of luck
