    My wife has forgotten her Outlook 2007 password and of course, the one she had written down is incorrect. I need to load her email account on my tablet, but we can't located her password. Is there a way to retrieve it?:mad:

    I don't know Outlook, but if the password you are talking about is similar to Thunderbird's "Security Device password" you are out of luck.

    Now you're talking about the account password, right? There is probably a way to reset it, but that depends, of course, on the email provider's method.

    Thanks. I found a way to reset it, but now my tablet doesn't want to connect to the server. PC's and Tablets must be the instruments of the Devil.

    Please do not post links to all sorts of external Outlook utility tools that have no bearing on the OP's posted problems. The aim of the forum is to help, not to unnecessarily complicate matters. And certainly not with tools that may cause problems where there is no need at all to apply them.
