Default POP3 Password Help

I had to switch some computers around recently and was getting complaints about emails. I took the PoP3 accounts off of a computer (I was lead to believe they weren't needed anymore) .. and it turns out they were needed on another computer. I have all of the information except the passwords.

Any way I can get the passwords for those POP3 accounts? I see there's password recovery tools.. but those find passwords for accounts that are there. If I try to readd them to the old machine I still have to know the password...

Please help! This is important!


There are programs you can buy, there's a registry key you can copy... none of it works, for anyone that I can tell. Glad I didn't waste anything on a program

Contact whoever is hosting the email address(es). Go to their web site, log in, and change the password yourself.
