After restoring Outlook Express account settings from a second drive, I used to input the password manually in Incoming Mail Server's password field (account settings).

Now I forgot this password. How can I retrieve this password?

Nirsoft's website has some free password recovery tools. Try to download and running one of them. You specifically need Mail Password Recovery.

I hope this helps :)
