Could you check your passwd in ~/.sylpheed/accountrc?
Comment 2 Gigs 2002-08-30 15:04:09 EDT
~/.sylpheed was deleted and recreated from scratch, and the effect was the 
same.  It does it even if you don't enter your password in the account, but if 
you leave it blank so that it prompts you each time.  Once the password was 
changed on the server to not include a *, it worked.  The password worked on 
other IMAP clients, so I know it is not server related.

Please try sylpheed-0.8.11-1 in Raw Hide. I can't reproduce this problem with it.
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-01-22 04:16:00 EST
I've re-tested this issue on sylpheed-0.9.7. I can't reproduce it and
I couldn't get any response. so I'm assuming this issue was fixed in
the current release. close.
