According to the post just prior to yours, it appears that things have changed. The poster got lucky thanks to some help from Headquarters.

After this length of time, probably not. Work with your ward clerk to contact the Global Service Center and see if your account is still on the system. Access usually goes away after around 60 days, and the account usually is deleted not long after that.

According to a prior post, it would have been permanently deleted at 18 months.

The post linked in the first post in this thread has some useful information about timing of account actions:

I'm afraid I'm not acquainted with exact procedures to download and transfer email. Some details would depend on your operating system and available tools. It's not POP-based, but one of the first options I would likely attempt would be to forward each message to a more permanent account.

Thanks so much! This helped a ton!!! Couldn't figure out why it said "Error: This account cannot be imported right now. Please try again later." but now it we could fix it. Thanks again!

Hey, So I saw the pop screen the first two times when I signed in to my account but I put it off, now it doesn't show up anymore. All it does is take me strait to my email, since I don't have my password it will not let me transfer my emails. I've only been home for about a month so if I could get some advice, I would really appreciate it!

If we have lost/forgotten the 10-digit password required to export the emails via POP, is there a way that we can reset that, or a way we can retrieve it?
