Re: [Evolution] Version 3.38.3-1 keeps asking for passwords

It produces a indown that asks for a password. When I enter the
password, the window disappears, as though it is accepted, and then
reappears after about ten seconds. If I cancel it, the behavior is as
if the password was accepted.

Why does it keep asking for the password when everything works?

Evolution doesn't store the passwords itself, it uses gnome-keyring
(via libsecret). If you are using a non-Gnome desktop then you need to
make sure that gnome-keyring is running. It usually gets started
automatically, but sometimes with non-Gnome desktops it can die and
libsecret keeps running with nowhere to store/retrieve passwords.

How to fix it?  Well often the most pragmatic approach is a reboot.
