Re: [Evolution] Evolution does not prompt for new password

Try actions->forget passwords.

Could you file a bug about this on also, the detail below should suffice.  Not sure why it would be dropping the failed authentication.

Hi all,

There is a problem with my Evolution 2.0.3 on Mandrake 10.1 Official (upgrade 
from 10.0). My password has been reset for one of my accounts by my provider, 
so I would really like Evolution to prompt me to enter the new password. 
Instead, Evolution just shows the "send & receive mail" dialog, saying 
"waiting" for a few seconds, after which it disappears. Meanwhile, ethereal 
shows what happens:

Response: +OK POP3 server ready
Request: CAPA
Response: +OK Capability list follows
Request: USER myusername
Response: +OK User name accepted, password please
Requst: PASS myoldpassword
Respones: -ERR Bad login
Request: CAPA
Response: +OK Capability list follows
Request: LIST
Response: -ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command
Request: UIDL
Response: -ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command
Request: QUIT
Response: +OK Sayonara

Small relevant excerpt from CAMEL_DEBUG:

CamelException.setv(0x8a8a7f0, 304, 'Unable to connect to POP server 
Error sending password: -ERR Bad login')

Authentication type of the account is set to "password".

Does anyone know why Evolution drops the error? Is there a 
practical workaround for this? Note that I have already tried removing the 
account and re-adding it in the account settings.

Thank you for your help,
