           Summary: KMail does not prompt for password and does not check
                    mail with IMAP
           Product: kmail2
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: ragnarokk91 at gmail.com

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.7.3) 
OS:                Linux

I've setup a disconnected IMAP account (same happens for a usual IMAP account).
When creating the account, I specified a password. Then I checked out the
messages, everything was fine, until I restarted the machine. Then, I started
KMail again to check my mail. KMail launched, but did not perform a mail check.
When I opened the Accounts page in KMail Settings, a message box popped out,
saying "You can do without KWallet, but KMail will ask you for the password
every time". The entry for the account said "could not read the password: user
rejected wallet access".

Now there was no password prompt. The password filed was greyed out so I
couldn't enter the password by hand. I started KWallet by hand but to no avail.

In the end, I had to recreate the account in KMail from scratch. It worked
exactly until the first restart of the machine.

I think that I should not have to recreate the account every time to check my
mail, don't you think?

Reproducible: Always
