I have an old PST that was used to archive mail in Outlook 2003 (attached to a hotmail account). I no longer have the password for the .pst file and microsoft does not provide any mechanism for dealing with forgotton passwords in this circumstance. There are dozens of password crackers available on the web that will likely do the job but I don't know which ones are trustworthy and which ones might contain malicious code. For example, when you pass even the most reputable password crackers to sites like VirusTOTAL to check for viruses, they come up as being full of viruses. This is to be expected since password cracking can be seen as malicious in various contexts. The problem is that I cannot tell the difference between bug entries that are to be expected (identifying code that is meant to crack passwords) and those which ones might be masking a keystroke logger, a trogen, a virus or a worm. Does anyone have any experience with "reputable" password crackers that I can use to get access to my old .PST? Does anyone remember a review by PC World staff of this type of "utility"?
