Is there a way to recover the email mailbox password entered in the EmailReporting plugin in Mantis?

If not, where is it stored so I can at least copy it and put it in the new version of the plugin?

I think it would be easiest to go here: /adm_config_report.php
Everything starting with "plugin_EmailReporting_" is for the EmailReporting plugin

There is nothing in that file with the word EmailReporting in it, I did a non-case-sensitive search.

Then you don't have any settings in that installation. You should do this on the installation where the settings are you want to copy. Also check whether the filters in the top are properly set.
Where are the settings you want to move?

That does not tell me where they are.
Are the settings in the MantisBT where you visited /adm_config_report.php ?
If so check the filters. The settings should be there.

Thank you! Yes, it is contained in a type "complex" item in that report. Where are the filter files on disk?

EDIT: never mind, got it! It is stored as a value in that array and I simply decoded the base64 string and got the original p/w. Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction!
