I'm reading between the lines here, but I gather the problem is you
have to unlock the keyring every time you want to check your mail.
The easy solution is change the default login keyring to use the same
password as you log in with.  Then it will  unlock that keyring when
you log in, and not bother you.  Use System -> Prefernces ->
Encryption and Keyrings
