    Hi,

    I had to make a new password for my email account (every 90 days) and could not really think of anything so just chose something randomly. And now I have forgotten it :(.

    I remember it was between 6-8 characters and contained the word 'cat' and maybe the number '20' or '11'. The password is required to contain numerical character.

    Is there such a program that can generate passwords for me, so I can try each? I know there are password generating scripts on the net that just generate a password, but is there something that can generate a password from a input of words and numbers, and how long it can be?

    Any help would be really great, as I would like to login into my emails. Another thing is there is no forgotten password type thing, and I have to go visit my IT department which are on holiday for another two weeks to reset the password.

    Why don't you have your e-mail provider just reset the password?

    It is not my ISP mail, it's my UNI email address and can not reset it until UNI comes back in about a week and a half :(.
