Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 167765
regression: connector does not remember passwords across sessions
Last modified: 2008-03-10 02:03:18 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup an exchange account
2. get mail
password popup box with option 'remember password for this session'
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:
evolution-connector version: 2.6.1 (1.fc5.1)
Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
I've tested the recent version of F8 Test 3 and F7:
and the problem is not present in both packages.
Thanks for responding. Setting version to f8test3.
Misread comment #3. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
