Live has become easier with the advent of computers. It has cut down our work by scores either directly or indirectly. From online banking, shopping, sending mails…the list is practically endless and maybe you have even found out ways to modify what you can do with it too. There seems to be a lot of online accounts for us these days; just as it is difficult to figure which key fits which door, the passwords too can get out of hand at times. Oh wait! What am I even thinking? The key and door scenario can come nowhere close to the havoc of having to remember these cryptic passwords you conjure up in your mind.
It makes it even more difficult when the number of these passwords increases daily with new online accounts you create. Well, I’m not here to take classes on increasing your grey capacity to accommodate all those cryptic words but rather to help the forgetful person that you are.
I’m here to help you take out that password you setup long before, which has faded away like the color of jeans you are wearing right now. You made a good move when you fought to your strengths and chose to transfer the password into the program’s memory. This has given you fast access to emails without having to enter the password and username over and over again. So when switching PC’s, the best thing to do would be to extract that very well forgotten password. Yeah, don’t worry! Neither you nor the person staring at your screen is ever going to see that password. So don’t be curious on the security part.
Now let’s see those steps that Outlook Express help renders on this issue with passwords.
- Open the Outlook Express program from your computer.
- Navigate to the menu called “Tools” and choose “Accounts”.
- From the “Accounts” window, go to the “Mail” tab located at the top.
- For extracting the password, highlight email account name from which you need to extract the password.
- From the right side of the window, click on the “Export” button.
- Now navigate to the location where you want to save the information.
- Next press the button “Save”. This would have extracted your password and other information of the account into an encrypted file.
These Outlook Express help instructions give you the steps on extracting the passwords for using it elsewhere. Ciao!
