Description of problem:
I tell evolution to remember my password.  It does so for a while, and then on
startup or when it is auto checking for mail, it redisplays the dialog for the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start evolution and press Send/Receive
2.Enter password for account and check box to have password remembered
3.Recheck mail or exit and restart evolution.

Actual Results:  Sometimes password is remembered for several executions. 
Eventually, evolution will forget the password and request it again, either on
first request to send/receive, or on an auto mail check if interval checking is

Expected Results:  Evolution should remember the password forever.

Same problem here.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-29 01:01:03 EDT
It's probably receieving some sort of error on the connection at some point,
which causes it to forget the password.  If you run `CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1
evolution-mail` in a terminal and wait a few seconds for the components to be
able to register with oaf and then start evolution, do you get any output in the
terminal before your password is forgotten?
