On a Mac OS X system, passwords can be stored in a keychain. You can view and manage stored passwords via the Keychain Access program found in the
Applications/Utilitiesfolder. If you use the Apple Mail program to check email for a Gmail account, you can view the password stored in a keychain for the Gmail account by opening the Keychain Access program and then typing
gmailin the search box at the upper, right-hand corner of the window and hitting Enter. You should then see entries displayed for
smtp.gmail.com, if you are checking email via the Internet Message Application Access Protocol (IMAP) and sending email via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
