Subject: How to use RULES to check for partially a remembered password


I actually think I may recall the beginning - perhaps the first 12 characters of a possibly 17 character pw.

So, for example, if I think the password starts "PicketFence6" and then may have 5 characters after it, is there a way to have the pw checking always start with "PicketFence6" and then append characters from the character set [a..zA..Z0..9$!&?]

Try to make a custom dictionary or use RULES if you remember something about the password.

Good Luck!
