I use thunderbird for one of my less recently used email accounts – I get a lot of spam.
I was trying to use a website to fill in a survey but I forgot my password so they emailed it to this email account.
Of course the email goes straight into the spam folder. This is rather large and I cannot browse it.
Easy solution: copy the Junk file to my linux box.
Find the location in the file of the retailer:
grep -in retailer Junk
This lists the location in the file of the retailer.
The first entry was on line 920123
sed -e”1,920000d” Junk > Junk.tail
I can now edit Junk.tail and find the temporary password.
Can you find a quicker solution?
