Screen shot of the bug

The attachment shows a screenshot of the dialog window (login window) which is
too small. I think that this bug could exist in other language versions too.

Version: unspecified → 1.0
Goin to check that with 1.5b2. We cannot change 1.0.x anymore though.

This problem is not present any more in 1.4.x, I just checked that.
There still _are_ linebreaks in the text though, which does make the "Remember
passwort..." part a little ugly. maybe we could finetune this. -> morphing to RFE

Martin, give me an actual screenshot, please.

Would it be helpfull to change the save password question to "Dieses Passwort
speichern"

I'll try to use forced linebreaks in the first sentence. Maybe we could tweakt
it to:

Für IMAP:

Bitte geben Sie Ihr Passwort ein für:
Max@mustermann.de@imap.musterdomain.de

(zur Info: bei IMAP bekommt man das "@" zwischen Mailadresse und Server leider
nicht weg, da es nur eine %S Variable gibt, die so vom IMAP-Server zurück
gegeben wird.

Für POP:
Bitte geben Sie Ihr Passwort ein für:
Max@mustermann.de
imap.musterdomain.de

(hier gibt es 2 Variablen getrennt für Mail- und Server-Adresse).

I've been improving the password dialogs for POP, IMAP, SMTP and LDAP.

2005-10-21 or 22 builds should be okay. Give it a try and verify this bug, please.
