Description Steve Stanley 2005-07-08 13:37:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I add a new email account and select "Server requires authentication" under Sending Email, this setting isn't saved. After finishing the account creation and looking back in the settings, this checkbox is unchecked. On sending mail, the smtp complains "authentication required". When changing the setting after the account creation, the setting is saved correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new email account
2. select "Server requires authentication" for sending mail
3. finish account creation
4. look back in setting for sending mail in newly created account

Actual Results:  "Server requires authentication" was unchecked

Expected Results:  "Server requires authentication" sould be checked if selected during account creation

Thanks for filing this bug report.  I'm sorry that it has gone for so long
without activity; it was incorrectly assigned to me by bugzilla.

Reassigning to mbarnes; once again, my apologies for my lack of activity on this

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-31 15:22:21 UTC
The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
