    The administrator of the server should have that information.

    So what did the person who administers the server have to say about the problem?

    I don't know why Bob bothered to ask that question. He knows the site rules don't allow for any help with passwords regardless of the reason.

    Sorry, ron. I've worked and have friends who have worked for companies with less than perfect IT policies. Unfortunately, there's nothing this site can do to help.

    Phew....Sure glad I never gave any specific information to help crack or get past any password issues. Sure glad asking questions doesn't give specific help either.
