User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2 (20030901) I use Thunderbird 0.2 and Hotmail Popper with my Hotmail account. This works great and Thunderbird is much better than anything else I've tried. When I'm prompted to enter my password I always check the box to have it remembered. Part of the time it does and Thunderbird gets my mail with no problem. But sometimes it asks me for my password again, especially when it's checking my mail every ten minutes. I don't see any pattern as to why it remembers sometimes and prompts me for my password other times, so I don't know how to reproduce it. Thanks for making a great mail client! Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I knw this bug is old, however I'm having the exact same problem, except not with Hotmail. I have four different e-mail accounts in Thunderbird (three of which are using the same POP3 server, one of which is using a completly different ISP). The three that are using the same POP3 server have given me no problems thus far, it's just the lone POP3 server that constantly asks me for a password despite clicking on the option to remember the password. I've tried deleting the password from the password manager and also deleting the file(s) that have the passwords in them, and nothing seems to be solving this problem. It has only recently popped up since upgrading from 0.8 to 0.9. I have absolutely no idea how to reproduce this bug as it only happens from time to time. Sometimes I will be able to leave Thunderbird running for hours (even a day or two) without it happening, and sometimes I'll be doing something and see Thunderbird asking for a password not more than ten minutes after I just "saved" the password (the account is set to check mail every five minutes if that makes any difference--I've tried with the default ot ten also).
