Open the Keychain access in Mac OS X, click on "iPhone Backup" password entry and you can view your backup password:

If your password is not stored in Keychain, you have no other options but erase your iPhone, next time create a new backup with a password you'll never forget.

I used it to recover my backup password, it took 2 hours to find my password. But I didn't think it can help extract messages from iTunes backup, it just can recover backup password.

Re: I forgot iTunes backup password, how can I recover forgotten iTunes backup password?

When we forgot iTunes backup password, we can't restore from our backup files. So many important data in iTunes backup files. But no worries, we still have chance to get back lost iTunes backup password. Do you still remember the characteristics of your iTunes backup password? It's all caps Latins? It's all small Latins? It's all digits? It's all special symbols? Or it has space? Or you till remember one character of your backup password, or you know nothing of iTunes backup password, you can use  Eelphone iTunes Backup Password Recovery to recover iTunes password within clicks.

If you would not to use your previous encrypted backups, you can remove old iTunes backup password by resetting the password. However, if you want to restore your device with the previous backups, the only way you can try a iTunes password recovery tool. And for Mac users, unencrypting is much easier because of Keychain. If you have enabled iCloud Keychain when you made the encrypted backup on Mac OS X, then you can recover your iPhone backup password with Keychain Access.
