Automatic recovery

This mode is very simple and does not require any special knowledge from you. The final Wizard dialog contains found and decrypted logins and passwords of the following types:
- POP3, IMAP or LDAP account
- SMTP account
- NEWS (NNTP) account type
You can export the list to HTML file for example or copy the decrypted information to clipboard.

Manual recovery mode

Windows Mail stores its encrypted passwords in 'C:\Users\%USER%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail' directory. For Windows Live Mail the root mail directory looks like 'C:\Users\%USER%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail' However to proceed with manual decryption, you'll need two things additionally:
1) User registry file, defaulted to C:\Users\%USER%\NtUser.dat, where the program hides its secret (picture 2).
2) User Master Key file, along with the user logon password and textual SID value (picture 3).

In order to decrypt DPAPI protected Windows Mail private data, you'll have to provide the program with the user Master Key, SID and logon password. By default, the Master Key file is stored in the following folders:
Windows Vista:
Windows XP-2003:
C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Microsoft\Protect\%SID%
The owner SID textual parameter is normally the same as the %SID% folder name. Once you have typed a correct password in the logon password field, the 'Next >>' button will be activated, so you can proceed to the final step of the Wizard.


Asterisk revealer

Sometimes it is enough just to uncover asterisks to remember your forgotten password. WMPR can successfully unhide such passwords. Just open 'Asterisks password revealer' dialog and drag the magnifying glass to the **** password box. You can also reveal asterisk passwords for other mail programs, not only for Windows Mail / Windows Live Mail.
