Hey Daniel,

Advanced Outlook Password Recovery

There are a bunch of password recovery programs out there.  This one works
against the outlook encryption system to unencrypt the pst file without
brute force guessing.

Experience: Found a working pass in one second.  then logged in and locked
the pst with a new password.

If you need more info contact me privately.

Subject: [exchangelist] Where to find pstpatch.exe file to fix lost
password for .pst

Using outlook 98, I forgot my .pst password.  I found information about
using the pst19upg.exe utility to "strip" the password.  Unfortunately it
didn't work (the operation encountered errors and bailed out).

There's apparently another method that does something to the mspst32.dll
to make it ignore password requirements.  This requires "pstpatch.exe" but
I can't find it on the internet.

Anyone know where I can download this file from?  Alternatively, are there
other methods for resetting or bypassing the password to open a .pst file?
