There is a program that comes with Exchange that is used to "fix" PST files.  
This program also just happens to strip the password from the PST file.  I 
believe it is in the Inbox Repair Tool, but it is definitely included in 5.0 
and 5.5.  Take a look in the tools (or similar) directories.

RE: Hacking Personal Folders

I have a client whom had previously password-protected a personal folder
(*.pst).  Following a recent upgrade of her workstation she was required to
setup the *.pst once again as an additional service within the MAPI client,
however, has since forgotten the password.  Does anyone know any workable
process to "hack" the file and make it accessible once again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it contains a fair amount of
critical information!
