Password Recovery Engine for Outlook Express is a program that will show you a list of stored e-mail accounts and their corresponding passwords from Microsoft Outlook Express. Additionally, the program can recover the details for your stored newsgroup subscriptions. Moreover, it's capable of recovering passwords for all Outlook identities you have. This will help you to regain full access to your email messages, sent items, drafts, news group mails, and more. The password recovery process is done via decrypting the data inside the Outlook express protected storage file (.PST), therefore the recovered passwords are immediately revealed.
The program misses a vital function: it's the ability to browse for and select the Outlook Express private settings directory, in order to directly recover lost passwords from it. This could have been very useful to recover email account passwords from a crashed or upgraded Windows installation. In my humble opinion, the price is too high for the recovery of passwords from an abandoned application, which doesn't even get support from Microsoft anymore. Moreover, it does not work with latest Windows platforms.
