    Don't know if this would work. Try this
    Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Mail Accounts ▸ Edit ▸ Receiving Email
    Select if you want Evolution to remember your password.

    there seems to not be a tick box or check bock or option to suggest "Select if you want Evolution to remember your password." -

    im able to put in my password on the prmpt that Evelution asks for when I first start it for the day..it remembers the password till i restart my system again , but then asks for it again after I reboot, same as with the Kwallet for the browsers..

    I was hoping to use the evolution with multiple email accounts and that would be a allot of re entry's ..

    thanks for replying was a good shot.

    One good suggestion here
    http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=108640#p253628
    you may need to add this line to KDE startup
    Code:
    /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=pkcs11

    basicly paste that line into

    << Menu/Configure Desktop/System Administrator/Start Up & Shut Down/Auto Start/ + Add Script >>
    ?

    You need to basically install gnome keyring as kde/<notSureAboutName> keyring is not compatible with Evolution (Refer :- http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=108640#p253628)
    The installation procedure might automatically add "autostart" entry . If not you may need to add it manually.
    Add autstart entry here :- https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...ml#post2154367

    I'm not entirely sure that helps.

    If you are running Gnome, and using "gdm", then the Gnome login keyring is automatically opened. Maybe that works also for XFCE and "gdm". If you are running "kdm" or if you login to KDE from "gdm", the Gnome login keyring is not opened. Some applications, probably including evolution, store passwords in the login keyring if it is open. Otherwise they store it in the Gnome default keyring. My best recollection is that you are prompted for a password for the Gnome default keyring, even if logged into Gnome with gdm (if you need to access data there).

    My reading of the OP is that the user is being prompted for the Gnome default keyring password. I don't think he can avoid that if using evolution from KDE. If seahorse is started at KDE startup, then I assume that he should only be prompted once per KDE session.

    I think you are going to be stuck with that. It is the downside of using a Gnome application (evolution) while running KDE as a desktop.

    Unfortunately, KDE and Gnome each have their own ways of handling passwords. For KDE, it is "kwallet" and for Gnome, it is Gnome keyring. I actually prefer the way Gnome does this, though I mostly don't like Gnome 3.

    With Gnome, there's a login keyring and a default keyring. The login keyring is encrypted with your login password. As long as you use Gnome and "gdm", the Gnome keyring will be automatically opened on login (but that does not work with auto-login). So, for a Gnome user, everything works smoothly behind the scenes.

    It would be really nice if the KDE and Gnome folk would get together and come up with a common solution for passwords that can be used by both KDE and Gnome applications. Until this happens, we will have to manage as best we can.

    You may try installing gnome-keyring and try the following script . you may need to change the directories in the script.
