Forgot e-mail password and username Vista

As you can tell this is quite an old laptop and I've never been asked for this before. Before I can access e-mails a "windows security" box pops up "log on to" asking for username and password.A long time has passed since I set this up and despite numerous combinations I'm getting nowhere. Any advice greatly appreciated. Cheers Mark

First, assuming you can remember the email address, go here - click here and use the forgotten password link to reset password. Vista used Outlook Express for email which was replaced by Live Mail and may not work even with correct username and password, try Mozilla Thunderbird once you know the password, or just use webmail.
