Description of problem:
I changed my mail server password.
Now, every time I reboot and start Evolution, it asks me for my username and password for the outbound mail server.
Even after entering it correctly, it asks again.
After 3 or 4 times, it seems to give up, remember it, and work.
And then I reboot my computer, and I have to do it again!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change password for desktop (presumably via "passwd" command)
2. Change password on the mail server
3. Open Evolution
4. Try to send an email
Repeatedly asked for password.
Evolution (or GNOME Keyring or whatever) remembers my password.
Remember password is ticked in my Evolution settings (Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts->(Account)->Edit->Sending Email->Remember password).
Installed Seahorse to debug, and it has got an entry for my mail server, and has the correct password.
Will reboot to see if the problem persists. Maybe GNOME keyring has finally remembered the correct password.
Or maybe Evolution is unable to unlock my master keyring? But then why doesn't it show a password prompt when I start it?
After a reboot, seahorse shows:
- Network secret
but no entry for SMTP.
Also: why isn't Seahorse installed by default if it's so often needed, and why doesn't it have an entry in the GNOME menu even after it's installed?
The "repeated" aspect is uncertain. This time it appears to have worked the first time.
After rebooting, the SMTP password now appears in Seahorse.
So two obvious possibilities:
- I mistyped my password at the first Evolution SMTP password prompt and it fails to store the password if the first-entered credentials are incorrect
- I correctly typed my password and some other condition caused it to fail
In any case, there's a problem somewhere around changing passwords.
Moving this bug upstream for better visibility.
