Default Reveal postfix passwords?

We're moving from Qmail/Vpopmail and love the vqadmin feature that reveals passwords for mailboxes. Is there a way either in ispconfig3 or in postfix in general to reveal user passwords?

Passwords are stored as hash in crypt format (with salt) in ISPConfig, this type of hash can not be decrypted. Being able to decrypt passwords of the users might be nice but it is is a big security problem in case that your server gets hacked as the hacker would then get all passwords in cleartext.

OK Thanks,
At least I know to stop looking for a solution that's not possible.
