I have one gmail OAuth account - saved password incoming and smtp
I have two pop accounts - saved password incoming and smtp
I have one pop account - I have removed saved password, but this only effects my incoming because that account uses another smtp which does have a saved password.
Can all those who experience issue test the following:
NOTE: For this TEST: It is important that you do NOT choose to send any email from any mail account that does NOT save smtp/outgoing password.
Please read carefully, so the test results are useful and correct.
Add password at prompt for all accounts that do not save password. I'm expecting OAuth account will have password auto saved.
Send email from Oauth account to all of the other accounts.
Do emails arrive on all other accounts either auto or if you select relevant Inbox and click on 'get Messages'.
If you have an account which uses a different smtp which DOES have password saved then please send email to all other accounts.
If you do not have any other account with a saved password for smtp, please for this test, do not use it to send any emails.
Please run this situation for a reasonable length of time - only send from accounts with saved password.
Do you find that all accounts continue to receive emails without requesting password?
Please report finding for TEST 1.
I am trying to prove that incoming password for accounts that do not save password remains fully functional in session providing you do not send from any account that does not save smtp password.
Please - for the sake of trying to work out what is going on - could you now send an email to all other accounts from an account that does NOT have a saved password, you will get prompted for password, enter it - BUT on this occasion, please select the checkbox to save that outgoing password - this is important.
So you now have an account where incoming has no saved password, but outgoing does.
Please continue to send email only from accounts that now have a saved outgoing smtp password.
Are you still able to receive all incoming mail to all accounts?
Are you prompted for any password for incoming mail.
Please run for a reasonable length of time.
The above tests do need to run for a few hours as you need to be certain that not sending via an account which does not save password is not effecting an incoming on any account, meaning the incoming not saved passwords are remembered for session.
Finally, send from an account that has no saved outgoing password to all other accounts. Enter password at prompt - do not save - just send.
Select Inbox and click on 'Get Messages' - repeat for each account to check for incoming mail.
Do you now find that after using an account that does not have password saved, other accounts are asking password for incoming mail?
Thank you for your co-operation.
The results should interesting.
