           Summary: Evolution forgets Exchange account password and folder
                    settings often
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: amd64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: evolution
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: vermyndax at galaxycow.com

Quite often while using Evolution in Breezy, Evolution will suddenly stop
connecting to my Contacts/Calendar/Tasks folders on the Exchange server.  You
can tell when it's happening when you go there and Evolution unchecks the box to
set these folders to display, even though the local ones still work.

What's happening there is that Evolution has forgotten my Exchange password, but
yet still uses it for checking mail (because mail still works).  To fix this, I
have to go into account properties, receiving mail... then click
"Authentication"... at this point I receive an error that my password is wrong.
 I have to click OK and then click "Authentication" again and put in my
password... then restart Evolution.  It will then work again for a little while
until it decides to forget it again, usually later in the day.

The other problem that occurs about the same frequency is that Evolution forgets
which folders I have set for my Sent Items and Drafts folders.  Evolution will
just suddenly start redirecting everything to my Inbox when I send an email or
whatnot.  I have to visit the account properties to reset this... probably at
least three times a week.
