    I presume you wish to do an automatic log in, thus the question. There may well be a way, but I do not know what it is. I believe it may be done using the Password and Encryption Keys app, found under Applications>Accessories>Password and Encryption on 9.10, but I've not tried it.

    Same problem here. Can't find a solution either. Very annoying.

    I'd like to know too, for Ubuntu One (presumably the same). My family skips the login screen, so Ubuntu One manually requests a password.

    i'de like to know this too, one way i'm guessing it could be solved is to un-encrypt the password. i wouldn't mind that on my pc since i'm the only one who uses it. maybe we should be asking how to store evolutions passwords unencrypted?

    Re: Unlock the keyring for Evolution

    Here's how I resolved this:

    Applications > Accessories > Passwords and Encryption Keys.
    Delete "Passwords: default" in the "Passwords" tab.
    Reboot.
    Open Evolution and hit Send/Receive.
    You will be asked to put in your password for the mail account, then another box will ask you to enter another password for the keyring where the mail account password will be stored. Leave it blank and click OK.
    You will then be warned that the mail account password will be stored unencrypted.
    If you accept this, you may be open to security risk, but you will no longer be bugged by that annoying keyring window.

    There's no reason to delete any keyrings. You can simply right-click it and select "Change Password" to change/remove the password.
