How it works?
Like most instant messengers, Trillian stores main account password in the secret password file so that user do not have to enter the password every time. This password is stored only if user has selected 'Save Password' at login time.

Latest version of Trillian Astra (Version 4.x - Version 5.x) stores only main account passwords (called as Identity or Astra password) in the 'accounts.ini' file at below mentioned location. But all other IM account passwords (such as Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, MSN etc) are stored on the servers.
[Windows XP]
C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Application Data\Trillian\users\global\

[Windows Vista & Windows 7]
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Trillian\users\global\
