Recovering a lost e-mail password is useful if you have forgotten it and need to access your e-mail. Mozilla Thunderbird, an e-mail application, stores saved passwords in its own cache. Using the Thunderbird cache you can access and view your e-mail passwords. Using this method, recover passwords that are stored but forgotten. When you have found out the password you will be able to access the email account using other methods again.
