Hi all. Maybe I'm in the wrong place because my machine runs Ubuntu.
But I did install evolution as my default mailer, and I gotta say I fell

Now, a week later, I booted evolution this morning and found that it
doesn't remember any of my email passwords. I remembered them fine just
yesterday but not this morning. I had to enter a dozen passwords into
evolution one at a time, as it demanded them from me. I didn't mind that
so much but, when it checked my mail again, an hour later, it wanted all
the passwords AGAIN.
I can't live like that. What can I do to fix it?

Short answer or long?

Short answer: Use a stable distribution.  GNOME is broken on Ubuntu,
they perform no QC and change things willy-nilly.

I got a little curious when I read this. I am using Ubuntu GNOME and do
not have any problems with GNOME other than that the latest GNOME
updates (of GNOME) take a little while to be made available. I have had
more trouble with GNOME on Arch, but I assume that's not what you mean
when you use the term "stable distribution" either? Are you talking
Debian stable, or would Fedora qualify in this regard?

Long answer:  you are probably having under-the-covers NetworkManager
and GNOME key-ring issues.  See the short answer.  But check your
diagnostic longs and see if there are any related errors.  It might be
