with 4.x, we had some tricks for remembering your password per session and we
always remembered your password per session, once you logged on.  but as soon as
you quit, and came back, you had to log in again.)  

in 5.0, we currently have two states:

1) rememeber my username / password in the current session and across sessions
2) never remember my password, even in the same session

it sounds like we need that to be:

1) remember my username / password in the current session and across sessions
2) remember my username / password in the current session, but not across
sessions.

I think this is what imap / and pop does.

It works for me.
By using the non-secure news server with remember password.
It is working for remember my username / password in the current session and 
across sessions. You can mark as fixed now.
