I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exchange doesn't have its own password database. Exchange credentials come from the domain. Therefore resetting the domain password would give you access.

Their email is hosted on 365 and I am not asking how to reset I asked how to i decrypt what is in the registry for their profile.

It isn't stored in the registry. Password are stored in the Windows Credential manager.

If the account is on Office365, then get the password reset by the account admin. Otherwise you are touching on illegal and I will have to flag this to the moderators for removal.
