            Bug ID: 329526
           Summary: password cleared if login refused by server
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Akonadi
           Version: 4.12
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: POP3 Resource
          Assignee: mcguire at kde.org

The password for an pop3 account is cleared when the server refused the account
data. On next request cycle the user have to enter the password again. This
behavior is problematic. There serveral providers which refuses the login when
called to often within a time period or busy. Its very nasty for the user to
enter the password alltimes again if the login has been failed before. I think
the password dialog should be displayed to the user with prefilled password.
Then  the user have the choice to enter a new password or simply hit enter to
use the old password again. Addionally, it could be useful to have a check
option in preferences of the pop3 ressource which allows to ignore login
failitures and dont display the password dialog in that case.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a pop3 ressource with account data from web.de (freemail), gmx
(freemail) or t-online
2. request to pull mail fast manually (web.de: < 3min, gmx: < 30s, t-online: no
time value known, randomly)
Actual Results:  
account data dialog displayed, username filled in, password removed

Expected Results:  
account data dialog displayed, username and password filled in
