kmail fails to authenticate
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrade from FC6 to F7, kmail forgot the account password and refuses to
authenticate. I've tried everything I can think of and it just won't
authenticate. Using kmail on FC6 still works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kmail
2. Asks for password, type it in
Message saying password was wrong
Starting kmail from command line doesn't give any extra information. Starting
kwalletmanager doesn't do anything. Doing kinit before starting doesn't help either.
I deleted all kde related directories in /tmp and went into the .kde folder in
my home directory and deleted the symlinks to /tmp. I editted gnome session
manager to not have any kde sessions started. Now, if I start kwalletmanager
before anything else kde is running, it still doesn't remember the password,
even though remember password box is checked. But when I type in the password,
it does authenticate and I can get to my mail. But it still does not remember
the password next time I start kmail.
kdepim-3.5.7-10.svn20070926.ent.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kdepim'
closing this since it seems better and no one was interested in it.
