    I have a 'live[ email account. Now when I try to send an email the message appears "Enter Your New Password for ...live.co.uk" or "Server Password Required. Enter your Password" I cannot remember my password from several years ago and did not realise that the one shown as a series of xxx's was not the correct one. This only applies to outgoing mail, incoming mail arrives ok. Can anyone help please?

    Scroll down near to the bottom of the page and download Nirsoft’s Mail PassView (Install/Uninstall support version) here http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/mailpv.html

    Be aware that some antivirus programs see the program as a threat, so you must allow it to run.
    It will recover passwords for Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Incredimail and Eudora. Depending how they are stored, it may recover passwords for Thunderbird, Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail.
