I have setup to save passwords but it seems that that this doesn't work.
Any advices will be appreciated!

When you log into GNOME does your setup/configuration unlock your
default keyring?  Evolution never saves passwords, it uses the GNOME
keyring for that.  If you run the "seahorse" application can you see
items in your keyring?

I have installed the GPA version 0.9.0 (the GNU Privacy Assistant)
application and the KDE Wallet version 1.07.

Evolution doesn't use the KDE Wallet system (and vice-versa: KDE apps
don't use the Gnome keyring).

I'm running not GNOME but Window Manager and I'm using XDM to login into
X Window System.

This is the root of the problem. Evo expects you to be running Gnome.
Even when running another desktop, it expects some Gnome components to
work. I use Evo under KDE and still have to unlock the Gnome keyring
once in every new login session. In your case, it seems you don't have
enough of Gnome for even this to work, so Evo is asking you for account
passwords all the time.

Possibly the quickest route to a solution is simply to install all of
Gnome, even if you don't use the Gnome desktop. That *should* be enough,
touch wood.
