Author/Date forgotten password

I forgot my password for my pop acocunt and the provider wont help me get another. They simply say they can't because it's encrypted.

I have no problem accessing my account because I had had i.Scribe save it before I actually forgot it, but it disturbs me. Is it possible in any way to retrieve my password from some file in my i.Scribe folder?

i.Scribe obscures the passwords in the settings file so they can't be easily stolen. I'm not comfortable about publishing how that works online.

I think you have 2 options, a) getting a network sniffer and see the password in the raw as you connect to the server or b) talk to me over email and extract it from the settings file.
