    Unhappy Evolution; cannot open default keyring

    Hi, Every time I open Evolution I am asked to put in my password to unlock the keyring as Ev cannot access it. This only started happening after an Ev patch recently installed.
    Intel 2750 3.0g, ram 4g 800mhz, Wd 500 gb sata2, wd ide 160gb, XFX 8800 GT r2.0.
    DB- Windows Vista HP 64, Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64b.

    This worked for me to get the keyring from popping up in evolution (hardy).
    System - Preferences - Password and Encryption
    This opens the password and encryption window.
    Click on the PGP Passphrases Tab
    Uncheck the box beside - Ask me before using a cached passphrase

    I was wrong, horribly wrong!
    When I rebooted the keyring was back.

    I read in a post that if you login without a password then evolution will ask for it.
    If you login with a password evolution won't ask for a password.

    After changing the "Ask me before using a cached passphrase".
    Evolution will only ask for the password the first time you open it after booting up, not each time.
