Where is the password for Web Import stored?

Version 1

    Details

    The Web Import processes are protected with passwords to allow import of only authorized incoming instruction files. This prevents unauthorized persons from sending e-mail messages and inundating a GoldMine system with unwanted data. A password is always required to use Web Import. The incoming instruction file will not be processed if it does not contain a password or if it contains an invalid password. 

    The Web Import authorization password is set at the top of the Web Import Profiles dialog box.
    NOTE:
    A password must be set before the Web Import functions are made available.
