Greetings to all,

I have a problem with two email accounts on Seamonkey.

I use the mail module (CRTL + 2). On these two accounts, I have to enter the mail account's password every time I want to read the account's emails.

I go to the email account, select "Read messages" and have a pop-up "Enter your password" for instance on pop.mail.yahoo.com.

If I stop the computer and restart it, Seamonkey will ask me to enter the password again.

How could I do so that Seamonkey, mail module, remembers the password?

I have tried to go to "Tools", "Personal Data Management" in the browser module (CTRL + 1), type "yahoo" for instance and the password tab is grayed.

It's quite weird. I also have two email accounts on the mail module of Seamonkey for which Seamonkey perfectly remembers the password.

I thank by advance anyone trying to help me.

When you enter the password, is there not a checkbox in the dialog to allow SeaMonkey to remember it?

No! I have just done this (read new emails) with the two email accounts and no, no checkbox to allow Seamonkey to remember it!

Is there something I can do to make that checkbox appear?

Are you using "Normal Password" or Oauth2?

I use "Normal password" for all my email accounts on Seamonkey.
