Yahoo's messenger is based on a Yahoo ID.  The person should be able to jump
out to Yahoo.com and click the sign-in link and then click the link to reset
or email the password information.

Subject: Recover Yahoo MEssenger password

Does anyone know of any method or tool to recover Yahoo Messenger password ?

My customer's pc had the password saved, in the system, and the windows

Upon a recovery, the yahoo messenger does not load up, and he does not
remember the password.

Are there any tools, to recover the password, from some cache file or
something, in the system ?

Thanks in advance,
