    evolution password issue

    just set up evolution so that it won't remember my password and asks me for it everytime... i just noticed that when i open evolution, it will prompt me for my password but all i have to do to see everything is exit out of the prompt.. anyone can see my emails without a password..

    is this how evolution works? or is there a way to fix it?

    i tried "forget passwords" and that didnt do anything
    idk what else to try cuz its already set to NOT remember my password

    The password is to authenticate when connecting to your email server.

    The point of clients such as evolution is the offline capacity.

    Your system, data etc should be protected by your login password and use of things such as locking the screen when leaving your system, home folder encryption etc etc

    If you dont want someone else to see your emails then dont let them use your login or your computer at all.....user management 101 of a multi user system
