Can you run the following in a terminal, and then try to use the keyring
using one of the applications you had trouble with above?

$ gnome-keyring-daemon --foreground --replace

Before doing so, I found a work-around to my problem. My mail server
accepts both short (username) and long (username domain com)
usernames. I found that my problem with SMTP passwords not being saved
only occurred when using the short form. When replacing that with the
long form, I was requested the password once only and the message got
sent the first time. Restarting Evo, the password was then saved

Still, I reverted to the short-form username to reproduced the problem
when running your command. When doing so, however, I was not requested
for the password again (not even after a Evo restart). Its as if using
the long-form username fixed the problem I had with the short-form

This is the output when running the command;

$ gnome-keyring-daemon --foreground --replace
** Message: Replacing daemon, using directory: /run/user/USER/keyring-VzYeki
Gkm-Message: using old keyring directory: /home/USER/.gnome2/keyrings
Gkm-Message: using old keyring directory: /home/USER/.gnome2/keyrings
** Message: couldn't allocate secure memory to keep passwords and or
keys from being written to the disk

There is no more output when sending emails (as the problem now
appears solved using the long-form username)

Oddly though, the SMTP authentication password does still not exist in
gnome-keyring (at least as far as I can tell using Seahorse). So,
where is the SMTP password being saved if not in gnome-keyring?

This PC was upgraded from Gnome 2, and the message referring to the
old keyring in ~/.gnome2/keyrings is a bit troubling.
