Our OE here at work was set up with individual identities on each computer. Each computer also has access to a general company identity too. The problem started when I was in my own identity and then switched to the general company identity to see if there was any new mail. When I tried to switch back it started asking me for a password. The password initially set up for all identities was "password". When I enter this I get an "incorrect password" error. I'm so confused. I even tried setting up a new identity adding my last name, but was unable to import any info since I don't know the password it keeps refering to.When OE opens it shows my identity (XXX@YYY.com) and I then enter "password" for the password. It goes to the new identity at that point. It is driving me crazy. OE help says that passwords are not all that secure and that users can still access the account. What can I do? I can't access my original mailbox.

Is there any other place where OE stores this password?
