hi experts,
If Im logging in any email site using my id and password windows will prompt for storing the user information(ID and PASSWORD) on that machine. If we say yes it is stored and on the next time we will automatically login after typing the id. can I get the user & password info using the MFC Programs.
Thanks in advance

hmm ... one problem is that it's not windows which prompts you
for storing the info but the used internet browser ... so,
depending on the browser you use the information may be
stored in different locations and/or using different
encryption.

Further I don't think the information where/how this info
is stored is freely available.

I beleive it is stored in a cookie and would be in an encrypted way that would be hard to get or read.

hmm ... I think it's only stored in a cookie if this feature
is implemented by the developer of the internet site ...
on the other side the internet browsers have their own
technique to store the usr/pwd, i.e. Mozilla has a password
