Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The POP3 password ***** be the password ***** login to your email account, I think.
So... open a web browser on your computer.
Go to the website of the email address, e.g. if the email address ends in @hotmail.com, go to
or if it ends in @aol.com, go to
Try to login there, with your email address, but with any old password (since you don't remember it.)
Then, when the system refuses the login, you use the
Forgot your password?
or similar link, to retrieve or reset your email password. Then, having the new password, you will know what your POP3 password *****
First, try accessing your email through a web browser. Open the web browser, and enter the part of your email address to the right of the '@' sign, in the Address bar on the browser.
Go to that website, and click on Log In or Login, and enter your username, then any letters for your password ***** that login will fail, but you will see a link to Find your forgotten password. Use that link... and if it needs an email address to send reset information to, then open another email account temporarily, e.g. with a free email provider like mail.com, and have the reset information sent to that email address.
Do not fall into the mistake of having the reset information sent to the same email address you do not have access to yet.
