Hi specialists, I have urgent question:

I need to build a program to transfer all the Outlook AND Outlook Express account configuration (for all outlook versions), INCLUDING PASSWORD.

I think I know where in the registery are all the configuration details, but I DON'T know where to find the password to copy it.

so I need one of 2 options:
1. the location of the encrypted password, if it could be copied encrypted and work like this on a different computer.
2. a way to crack the password, then I will modify my installer to enter the password automatically at the first time the user open outlook (or my installer will open it himself to do that).

(well, I prefer the first option, will save me work)

 OF COURSE I NEED A WAY TO DO IT IN MY SOURCE CODE OR BY USING EXTERNAL DLL (if it's not too expensive). I can't do this stuff with a stand alone program that cracks the password, etc, because my cliend needs my program to look professionally.
