Retrieving AIM Password locally?

Is there a file on my computer where I can find my password or does it check a server when I'm signing on? I'm asking because I forgot a password for an old account and want to get back on using it. Thanks in advance.

Perhaps it expired? I'd contact their helpdesk.

I should clarify, the account is about a month old.

Okay, I was just confused by this.

I don't think its possible to retrieve the pw yourself. Best bet seems to be sending an email to aol.

Sorry for the confusion.

I clicked on the Forgot Password link and that takes me to a page to request the password by entering my Username. It sends the password to the email address of the account with that username. The problem is that I don't remember what email address I used to sign up with.

I'll try and contact them. Thanks.
