Description bastiaan 2005-09-07 17:39:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Has the feature 'remember this password'. However for exchange account this
appears to have been replaced with 'remember this password for this session'.
This in itself is already very annoying (and inconsistent because Evolution will
remember passwords for other mailbox type as long as you want).
But the problem is worse because Evolution appears to be very fragile in
situations where you have to enter a password while it tries to setup
connections to Exchange. This results in login failures with error message
'Could not locate server' !?  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup an exchange account
2. get mail
Actual results:
password popup box with option 'remember password for this session'

Expected results:
password popup box with option 'remember password'

It seems, that in FC5 the behaviour is the following:
1. password dialog has the option "remember password" (and _not_ "remember
password for this session" any more)
2. nevertheless evolution still asks on every startup for the password

I would suggest to update the bug to: 
  Version: FC5
  evolution-connector version: 2.6.1 (1.fc5.1)

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-02 14:05:46 EDT
Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Comment 3 Christian Krause 2007-10-16 02:46:08 EDT
I've tested the recent version of F8 Test 3 and F7:
and the problem is not present in both packages.
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-16 07:34:32 EDT
Thanks for responding.  Setting version to f8test3.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-03-10 02:03:18 EDT
