2 Questions:

1) How do I change the administrator password after Kerio Mailserver is up and running (v6.0.8)

2) What file(s) are the user passwords stored and how can I view them once they have been created?

Is there any way to convert the file to plain text?

No, I think it's a hash methode (irreversible encryption) BUT you can use MasterPassword or change the password into the Admin GUI.

From documentation :

"
How do I reset the password for a user if I've lost access to the administration?

Settings for all users are stored in the users.cfg file located in the 'install path/MailServer' directory. Stop the KMS service/engine and edit the users.cfg file using notepad. You will see that each user has a password field with an encrypted password value. Replace the content of this field with 'NUL:yourpassword'. Note that NUL indicates that the password is in plaintext. After logging into the administration you can edit the password so that it will be encrypted in the users.cfg file.
