If you try a few passwords and they are unsuccessful (wrong!) then the account maybe has an option for 'Forgotten My Password'.

When you click on that you will be asked your own security question that you created when you started the account. Answer that correctly and you will either be allowed into the email account OR you will be sent your password to whichever Secondary Email address you have specified.

If you cannot remember your security question you either are breaking into someone else's email account or too dumb to have an email address in the first place.

If you are not the legal owner of this email address and follow the above procedure, the rightful owner's Secondary Email Address will be contacted, thereby notifying them that someone has tried to change the password!!

Good luck or not - as the case may be.
