I just got a new computer, and I somehow created two identities in Outlook Express. I forgot what the password was that I put in, and now I can't delete the extra identity, and I also can't see the email I did get under the first identity. Is there any way to acess that first identity without a password?

You won't ( or should not) be able to access the account without the password, what error message do you get when trying to remove it

I don't get an error message, I am just not able to access, and edit, or remove, the account. I only need one account. I would like to delete tha other. I cannot, without the password, which I forgot.

No, that's teh problem. the one I need is the one with my address book and email groups all set up, and all my old mail. I just can't access it, b/c I forgot the password.

OK, it gave me the first two letter, which, as it turns out, are no help at all. What else can I do?
