I have configured Eudora OSE to not save passwords. One of my SMTP accounts requires a password. If I fat-finger this password when it is prompted for, there is no option to change the password after authentication fails. This is in contrast to authenticating for a POP3 server, where a dialog offers to retry or allow me to enter a different password.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure an SMTP account requiring authentication
2.Send mail to that server and enter an incorrect password.
3.Authentication fails, and any subsequent attempt to send mail to that server attempts and fails authentication with the same password.
Actual Results:  
There's no way to reset the incorrect password. Eudora must be restarted.

Expected Results:  
After step 3, Eudora should have offered a way to reenter the password.

I did not actually create a new account as implied in step 1 above; I already have such an account. It is possible that the Eudora has a password reentry path available during the initial connection process, although I don't think this is the case.
