Evolution never asks me for a password.  It somehow still knows the
password from before, and I can access my IMAP email.  How is this
possible, if I completely removed the ~/.evolution and
~/.gconf/apps/evolution directories before X (and therefore gconfd)
started?  Even stranger is the fact that Evolution *does* prompt me to
accept the self-signed SSL certificate on the server again... but the
password it somehow remembered from before.

it's got a built-in password cracker that can crack any password in mere
seconds. :)


the passwords are not stored in either of those locations, they are
stored in ~/.gnome2_private/Evolution
