For each email account, the following fields are displayed: Account Name, Application, Email, Server, Server Type (POP3/IMAP/SMTP), User Name, and the Password.

Using the Mail PassView utility

This utility is a standalone executable. It doesn't require any installation process or additional DLLs. Just run the executable (mailpv.exe) and watch the list of your email accounts. You can save the accounts information into a text file or copy them to the clipboard.

You can also save the email accounts information by using the following command-line options:

/stext Save all email accounts into a regular text file.
/stab Save all email accounts into a tab-delimited text file.
/scomma Save all email accounts into a comma-delimited text file.
/stabular Save all email accounts into a tabular text file.
/shtml Save all email accounts into HTML file.
/sverhtml Save all email accounts into HTML file. (vertical)
/sxml Save all email accounts into XML file.
/sort This command-line option can be used with other save options for sorting by the desired column. If you don't specify this option, the list is sorted according to the last sort that you made from the user interface. The parameter can specify the column index (0 for the first column, 1 for the second column, and so on) or the name of the column, like "Email" and "Name". You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Email") if you want to sort in descending order. You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.

mailpv.exe /shtml "f:\temp\pass.html" /sort 2 /sort ~1
mailpv.exe /shtml "f:\temp\pass.html" /sort "~Application" /sort "Name"

/nosort When you specify this command-line option, the list will be saved without any sorting.

Notice: If the filename contains one or more space characters, you must enclose it with quotes ("").

Translating Mail PassView to other languages

Mail PassView allows you to easily translate all dialog-boxes, menus, and strings to other language.
In order to do that, follow the instructions below:
  1. Run Mail PassView with /savelangfile parameter:
    mailpv.exe /savelangfile
    A file named mailpv_lng.ini will be created in the folder of Mail PassView utility.
  2. Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
  3. Translate all menus, dialog-boxes, and string entries to the desired language.
  4. After you finish the translation, Run Mail PassView, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
    If you want to run Mail PassView without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
