A couple of months ago I had written down a hard password on a piece of paper and used it on many accounts, like e-mail, twitter, etc. The accounts are so ancient that I don't remember the secret question (which I used the same for all of them), which I also had written down somewhere.

 The house cleaner probably did those notes in for all I know, and now it's gone. The account is configured on Outlook, and I've seen on the internet where to locate it on registry - but that doesn't help much, I need to know what password I used to configure the account on Outlook. How can I get there?

Thanks.
