I presently use
    'wmctrl -l'
        to list the Titles of open windows (including dialog boxes)
which I search for “Mail Authentication” (using Python and Autokey)
and then send the password with AutoKey.

But I'm guessing as to the order in which the mail accounts issue a

"The Mail Autentication Request" dialog box cites the email account
in the body of the dialog but ‘wmctrl -l’ doesn't read that.

evolution-data-server can save its passwords in a password storage
backend accessed via's Secret Service API.
What stops you from using that?
