I have lost the Outlook account password that I have been using. I did the formatting and when I tried to log in, I couldn't remember my password of my Outlook account. Please help me with the easy ways to get it back.

TechRepublic members cannot help you, contact Microsoft

TR members do not assist in password recovery or removal.

We, the members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery/removal of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover/remove a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we, the members of TechRepublic, will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, hard drive password recovery/removal should be taken up with the manufacturer of the hard drive, etc...

Just in case you mean the Password that Outlook uses with your ISP

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Lost the password of my ...

To retreive the E Mail if that is what you are asking about you need to contact your ISP and get them to reset your password.

Most ISP's will issue a temp Password and you need to reset it to something you will remember before the password expires.
