I have set up a POP3 mail account (Yahoo) in Gmail to send and receive my Yahoo messages from there. Everything works, so obviously I saved my password for the account somewhere in Gmail.

I want to log in to Yahoo now, but cannot remember the password nor the security question.

Can I somehow pull the password from Gmail?

I already tried to find it in Firefox's and Chrome's saved password list, but could not find it there.
