Description Dax Kelson 2006-03-01 12:27:36 EST
Description of problem:
I've seen this problem with Evolution v2.0 - 2.5.90.

When running Evolution for the first time and running through the wizard to
create an IMAP + SMTP email account I choose to use SMTP Authentication.

Specifically I choose:

Host: myserver.mydomain.com:2525
Server Requires Authentication [x]

Use Secure Connection: Whenever Possible

Authentication Type: PLAIN
username: myusername

After the wizard finishes and I download my INBOX email fine, I try to send an
email and it fails. When open up the configuration tab for "Sending Email", the 

Server Requires Authentication []

Setting is unchecked. That is the bug. 

Evolution is "forgetting" that I set that option in the initial wizard.

If I toggle it back on, it stays remembered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Evolution v2.0 through at least 2.5.90

How reproducible:
Every time

Thanks for filing this bug report, and investigating it.  I'm sorry that it has
gone for so long without activity; it was incorrectly assigned to me by bugzilla.

Reassigning to mbarnes; once again, my apologies for my lack of activity on this
