Bug #218954 now reappears: When option "fetch messages automatically every X minutes" is activated, TB asks for the password every time it tries to fetch messages automatically although the password is entered in the password manager and the remember option is activated. If messages are fetched manually by clicking on the according button, no problem occurs - the password is properly remembered. Additionally, if the password is entered when the prompt comes as described above, the prompt window appears again and again, sometimes up to 4-5 times. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter password into password manager/message account and activate "remember" function 2. Activate "fetch messages automatically" and wait for the prompt window Expected Results: It should fetch the messages without password query
I am currently using version 1.0 (20050214) and I am still having this problem (and it's *very* irritating) have been noticing this for several versions now...

This bug still exists in version 1.5. beta of Thunderbird. This bug is not simply annoying - it makes usage of Thunderbird in day-to-day business impossible.
App: Thunderbird Ve. 1.5 Beta 2 20051006 OS: Mac OS X 10.3.9 Reproducible: Yes [consistently] smtp gateway used: smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com POP3 gateway ussed: mail.cisdata.net (used on all 6 accounts) Today, I upgraded from the Relesed version of T-bird. After upgrading, Initially, I did not experience this problem of the bogus pop-up notifier window: Alert Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server mail.cisdata.net responded: Login failed. The problem occurred after all my passwords were removed due to having to reset my Master Password for T-bird. After inputting all 6 of my POP3 accounts and my smtp username/password, the symptoms occurred. I think this is a clue as to why many users do not experience this problem. I'm assuming this is not a Mac OS version issue only. If I'm wrong, sorry for not filing separate bug report.
