Our final resolution is that we want to go with the obscuring/encrypting choice
and we just need to clarify the UI somewhat.  Here's what we need:
1.  All dialogs with a "save password" type of checkbox need to clearly describe
the obscuring/encrypting mode we're in.  The wording is to be determined by the
appropriate UI/docs people.
2.  The first time through one of these dialogs, an alert comes up to ensure the
user understands what type of protection they're getting and that they can
change it.  Again, wording from UI/docs people.
3.  The "enter master password" prompt dialog needs to be branded for PSM and
clearly state which password is being requested.

For points (1) and (2), I have some proposed wording up for discussion. When I 
hear back I'll revise as necessary and post it here.

Perhaps a easy dialog like this:
"Please enter your username and password for the following server:
Server  :
Username: [hegetest____________]
Password: [____________________]
[ ] Remember password

That would be soo much easier to understand for the user. Futhermore you have 
the ability to change the username incase you misspelled at the time of

Fix checked in.  Changed files were singsign.cpp, singsign.h, wallet.cpp, 

The actual wording on the dialogs is still not yet cast in stone.  But that's 
trivial to change -- the wording itself is in

The alert that appears when having checked "save password" during a mail account

wizard setup, appears *behind* the wizard on linux.

The top and right side is partly visible, but users don't expect important

messages to hide like that. While it hides, buttons on wizard are blocked. I had

to look around a little to find that there was another dialog hiding, expecting

me to click an OK button i didn't see.

The symptoms described above are a platform-parity issue -- it works fine on a 
windows box running NT.  The dialog is neither behind the wizard, nor is the 
wizard blocked while the dialog box appears.

You should probably open a separate bug report on this problem (don't morph this 
one).  I'm not sure if it is a wizard problem (in which case you should assign 
it to the mailnews team) or a dialog problem (assign to xp-apps team).  So you 
need to decide.
