Bug ID: 383279
Summary: Kmail unnecessarily prompts for passwords
Product: kmail2
Version: unspecified
Platform: openSUSE RPMs
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: misc
Assignee: kdepim-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@rentec.com
Target Milestone: ---

Since I upgraded Kmail from 16.08.2 to 17.04.2 (openSUSE Leap 42.2 to 42.3)
Kmail prompts me for passwords on my IMAP accounts every 10 minutes or so. All
of my IMAP accounts are configured to use GSSAPI authentication and don't use a
password at all (they use my Kerberos ticket for authentication). I have to
click OK with an empty password field in order to make the password window
disappear. This is very annoying and it started with openSUSE 42.3, Kmail
17.04.2. It could also be Akonadi or some other component doing the password
prompting, I can't really tell. The end result is the same for me.

I can confirm this problem in general. Kmail asks for a password at startup or
once I click some folder (not synchronized before) for IMAP account with GSSAPI
auth.

Asking for password every 5-10 minutes was fixed in

I think some more places in code should not check password emptiness for GSSAPI
account, for example I can not change subscription right clicking on account in
folders tree.
Probably because of this piece of code

It asks password once on startup.

It got better in kmail-17.12.3 (Leap 15.0) but it still occasionally prompts
for password despite GSSAPI authentication. I think I got the prompt on startup
and sometimes if I click "Check Mail" or so.
