    You can use the Mail Pass View utility by Nirsoft to do this - Google it and you'll find.

    You can recover your forgotten password using a free utility named pst19upg provided by Microsoft. This free toll only works with older version of MS Outlook (up to Outlook 2002). You cannot recover password from earlier Outlook editions using this free utility.

    If you are an ANSI user then follow these steps:

    1. Now run scanpst.exe
    2. Open command prompt
    3. Type path PST19UP your PST name: PSTUPG19.EXE-filename.pst and press Enter
    4. The command line will resemble: “C:\My Documents\pst19upg.exe”- Outlook.pst.
    5. A new copy of the PST file will be created, which is called “filename.psx”.
    6. Once you have completed, rename the original PST file.
    7. Now at the Command Prompt, type “pst19upg.exe- filename.psx”
    8. A new password-free PST file will be created from PSX file.

    Open password free PST file with your MS Outlook to access your emails.
