           Summary: Forgets passwords after cancelling kwallet password
                    dialog once
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.7
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: torquil gmail com

Version:           1.9.7 (using KDE 3.5.7, Debian Package 4:3.5.7.dfsg.1-7 (lenny/sid))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.22-1-686

In short: Why does my IMAP/POP/SMTP passwords have to be reentered only because I have previously cancelled the kwallet password dialog box (the one that asks for the kwallet "master password")?

Here is a possible scenario: I am writing an email, and press send (or mistakenly press CTRL-Enter...). Then I change my mind when the kwallet password dialog has popped up. The only way to do that is to choose "Cancel", so I do that.
The next time I want to send an email, I will then have to reenter the SMTP password. So kwallet must have forgotten it, just because I cancelled the kwallet "master password" dialog previously? I never asked kwallet to forget my SMTP password.

Best regards (and thanks for the great software)
