Evolution password and keyring - please help me stop the madness!
I've searched and found a few threads, none with a definitive answer. I have installed every update you can find for Ubuntu to this date 6/17/08. At some point one of the updates broke Evolution. Now, every time I launch Evolution per Ubuntu session, I'm asked for a password to unlock the keyring. So basically, I'm typing my Ubuntu password to get to checking email, even though I set up my account to remember my email password so I don't get bothered.
I made my peace a long time ago with having to type a root or sudo password to do administrative tasks on Linux. But being forced to type a password to check email is insane! I've used MS Outlook (as in Office Outlook not Outlook Express) for six years, always with the email account configured to remember my password so I don't get asked again. Guess what? I've never, ever gotten my email account hacked, so there is no excuse for Evolution's latest bureaucratic paranoia.
Please, please, PLEASE help me make it stop. I'm close to deleting Ubuntu and re-embrace XP as my one and only OS, because of this issue.
