usually, a mail client will have the option to retreive a password if it's lost. Try searching around the website (mail client website) for a link to retreive a lost password.

no problem. but that's the only way of retreiving a lost password. a good hint to remember passwords is to write it down and keep it i a safe place OR you can let windows remember the password as it is typed in.

As long as the person knows the email address, the password should be able to be retrieved to that address. However, if the person can't access the email account, a (gasp) telephone call might be needed, with the bill and account numbers in hand.

I keep a text file with passwords, and add to it, as needed. Now and then, I print it. Then I misplace it. Works like a charm.
