recovering emails from encrypted .nsf file backup

I have a backup of an .nsf file from an old laptop and no longer have access to the old computer (nor easy access to the old employer).  I downloaded the trial version of Notes 6, but when I try to open the file, it tells me it has "local access protection".  I have the password, of course, but am wondering if there's going to be any way for me to get access to these old encrypted(?) emails without begging for archive tech support from the old employer?

That is the strongest area of notes and you are trying to hack..;-)

To open use the id with which it was encrypted... that is your only key. Or else you have lost the chance.

Thanks for your help on this.  I'm just getting started with EE and hadn't figured out the rating/grading until today, so I wanted to fix this.
