Using the Mail PassView utilityThis utility is a standalone executable. It doesn't require any installation process or additional DLLs. Just run the executable (mailpv.exe) and watch the list of your email accounts. You can save the accounts information into a text file or copy them to the clipboard.
Getting email passwords from another instance of Windows ?Many people ask me whether it's possible to extract the email passwords from an external instance of Windows that cannot boot.
For now, Mail PassView can only retrieve the passwords from external drive for Mozilla Thunderbird, Netscape, and Eudora. It's possible that external drive support for more email applications will be added in the future. In order to do that, you must go to 'Select Folders/Files' window (F6) and manually select the right folders in the external drive.
Command-Line OptionsYou can also save the email accounts information by using the following command-line options:
|/stext <Filename>||Save all email accounts into a regular text file.|
|/stab <Filename>||Save all email accounts into a tab-delimited text file.|
|/scomma <Filename>||Save all email accounts into a comma-delimited text file.|
|/stabular <Filename>||Save all email accounts into a tabular text file.|
|/shtml <Filename>||Save all email accounts into HTML file.|
|/sverhtml <Filename>||Save all email accounts into HTML file. (vertical)|
|/sxml <Filename>||Save all email accounts into XML file.|
|/skeepass <Filename>||Save all email accounts into KeePass csv file.|
This command-line option can be used with other save options for sorting by the desired column.
If you don't specify this option, the list is sorted according to the last sort that you made from the user interface.
The <column> parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or
the name of the column, like "Email" and "Name".
You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Email") if you want to sort in descending order.
You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.
|/nosort||When you specify this command-line option, the list will be saved without any sorting.|
Notice: If the filename contains one or more space characters, you must enclose it with quotes ("").
Translating Mail PassView to other languagesMail PassView allows you to easily translate all dialog-boxes, menus, and strings to other language.
In order to do that, follow the instructions below:
- Run Mail PassView with /savelangfile parameter:
A file named mailpv_lng.ini will be created in the folder of Mail PassView utility.
- Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
- Translate all menus, dialog-boxes, and string entries to the desired language.
- After you finish the translation, Run Mail PassView, and all translated
strings will be loaded from the language file.
If you want to run Mail PassView without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
