How to Recover Forgotten Microsoft Outlook Password

No human is a machine that can remember and recollect the pieces of information fed into it. Since I understand that losing password is quite a common problem and can occur anytime, I am discussing here how you can recover or reset your password easily.

How to Recover Password:

Download and run a free or paid password recovery tool from a trusted website. Save the file to your desktop. When done, double-click the file and run it as administrator. Wait until the program searches through the Windows and brings up your password. It may take less than a minute or so to recover your password. You can choose from a wide range of available tools like Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password and Outlook Email Password Recovery v. etc.

***Password recovery tools are not recommended as they are capable of sharing your email password with their developers, leading to PC security issues.

How to Reset Password:

Contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) whose email account you have set up in your Outlook. Once you have got the new password, open Outlook. Click the Tools tab> Account Settings.

In the Account Settings dialog box, click the E-mail tab, and double-click on your account name like It will open up the Personal Folders window. If it doesn’t open up anything, then highlight the Data Files tab and look for your mailbox name and click it.

Click the Change Password button and type your ISP-provided password in the Old Password box, enter a new password of your choice in the New Password box, and retype it in the desired box. Click OK to save changes and exit the Change Password box. Click Apply and then OK to exit Personal Folders. Click Close to exit the Account Settings window.

Instead of putting another password, you can simply update your Outlook with the password provided by your ISP. Click ToolsAccount Settings. Double-click your email account name under the Email or Data Files tab. Scroll down to the Logon Information heading, erase the already keyed in password, and put in your new ISP-provided password.

Check the Remember Password box. Click the More Settings button and make desired changes. Click OK to return to the previous window. Review all your settings and click the Test Account Settings button if you want to test the settings. When done, click Next and then Finish.
