This software is developed to restore forgotten passwords from Outlook files in OST and PST formats. It helps in recovering and showing forgotten passwords either from Outlook directly or from any file of PST or OST format, not currently allocated with Microsoft Outlook. Please, kindly go through the following brief guidelines to understand how it works.

The first step for password recovery is to download the Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password. It is a small tool, that permits restoring passwords from Microsoft Outlook. The setup file for the application is very small (approximately three Mb), and can be installed on any computer using Microsoft Windows. As soon as the download is complete, click the setup file for installation and follow the guidelines of application. During the installation of Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password, users are prompted to choose the language, accept the terms of agreement, and select the installation path (or accept it by default).

Restoring forgotten password in Microsoft Outlook

Let us try to recover a password from one of MS Outlook accounts and take a closer look at how it works. Despite the intuitive interface of the software, its developer provides all necessary guidelines about the recovery of lost passwords. This can be found on the website of the application developer. However, I believe these manuals are not needed as you just need to open the Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password and take a look at the interface of application.

The main screen is divided into 2 panes, one on the left and the other on the right. The left pane displays the list of user accounts, already allocated to Microsoft Outlook. By selecting an account in this pane, take a look at the right pane and you will see all of its connection details, including the account password. In the case where there are no allocated accounts, or where you need to open another account, click the Open PST file button.

In this window, use the open file button and select a mailbox in either OST or PST format to open. The Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password quickly analyzes the mailbox in question regardless of the size of the input file, and provides the recovered password.

In case there is no password shown after the recovery session, click the Get password button for a visible recovered password. As soon as the password is recovered and displayed in this window, copy it and paste to Microsoft Outlook to unlock your account.
