Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476163
IMAP and SMTP passwords are not saved
Last modified: 2009-01-09 04:38:00 EST
Description of problem:
IMAP and SMTP passwords are not saved even though the save password checkbox is checked
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I guess Matt also thinks it could be related to fix for bug #474257 (see its duplicates and links to other bugs, all that was caused by a single issue).
Please try to update to evolution-2.24.2-2.fc10 , which should be now available for stable updates, and report back. Thanks in advance.
Done. I have evolution-2.24.2-2.fc10.i386 installed and it still does not remember the passwords even though the checkboxes are checked
What is your authentication mechanism you've set within your IMAP account in Evolution? Can you also try to run Evolution on console and paste here the output of some short session (after evolution --force-shutdown), like run Evolution, enter password, let it finish download changes from a server and close evolution. I expect some information from keyring on the console, which may help hopefully.
Thanks in advance.
I got a private response from Matthias, stating:
Milan, thanks for the suggestion to look at the debugging output, it
turned out to be keyring problem (it said that it could not access the
keyring even though it was there...), so I removed the login.keyring,
logged off and on again, and now it's working.
Thus closing. Feel free to reopen if you face again.
