    Default Kmail does not store SMTP passwords correctly

    Hello,

    My installation is based on the live CD downloaded one week ago:
    openSUSE-11.0-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso
    Furthermore, I installed all the updates available.

    Now, there is a bug in Kmail: If you configure SMTP not to store passwords, you're prompted to enter the password. I enter my password and it works. The next time I enter the password and check "store password" and sending works. This means that the password entered was correct! If you then try to send a mail using the stored password, sending fails. It seams that Kmail does not store/read the password correctly.

    I do not like KWallet very much. Nevertheless, I was trying to solve my problem using KWallet, but this did not work either, because if I want to store the password, Kmail says that KWallet is not available. Furthermore, if I say that I don't want to store the password, Kmail stores it anyway. So this is all quite buggy.

    Doing some research I saw that this is probably a known bug. Does anybody know how to solve this. At the moment I have to enter the password for every email I send, which is quite annoying.

    In general, do you know how the general procedure is? Could I expect this bug being solved by some update coming shortly?

    I really stick to using Kmail, having been happy for many years with it, therefore using Thunderbird is not a solution.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Sven,
    This is a known KDE bug, assuming your password begins or ends with a !: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=167900
    I've got the same problem. But if you vote on the the thread above, it'll probably get fixed quicker.
