Mail PassView 1.86
Recover lost passwords for Outlook, Gmail, Thunderbird, more

Mail PassView is a tiny portable tool for recovering user names, passwords and other details for many popular email accounts and services.

The program supports Outlook 2000-2013, Gmail/ Hotmail/ MSN mail/ Yahoo! Mail (if the password is saved locally), Thunderbird (if the password isn't encrypted by a master password), Windows Mail/ Live Mail/ Outlook Express, IncrediMail, Eudora and more.

To use the program, just download and run it. Any details detected are displayed in a table containing the following fields: Account Name, Application, Email address, Email server, Server Type (POP3/IMAP/SMTP), User Name, and Password.

As usual with NirSoft tools, any recovered data can be saved in a text report for easy reference later.

There's also a simple command-line interface. Running mailpv.exe /stext c:\passwords.txt in a script, for example, saves all your passwords in the specified file without displaying an interface.

Please note: security software will sometimes highlight Mail PassView as a threat. This is because it could be used maliciously, for example by someone else to steal the passwords from your machine: the program isn't otherwise dangerous in any way.

Version 1.86 is fixed to work with the latest versions of Mozilla Thunderbird.

Verdict:

A very simple way to recover forgotten account details, perfect if you need to set up a new email client and you've forgotten servers, user names, passwords and so on.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
