Where's kmail password stored ?


Hello,

I've installed SuSE 10.2 and I'm moving the kmail stuff from the previous installation (SuSE 9.3) to the new one. I've moved the ../apps/kmail/ folder as well as the ../config/email* files, but the new kmail is still asking for the password for the ISP e-mail service. Problem is, I don't remember what that password is. I could ask the ISP, of course, butit'd be much faster just to copy the file that has it. Anyone knows which file contains the kmail password so I can copy it over ?

Cheers.

It's most likely over in Kwallet.

I've copied over the kwallet directory and the kwalletrc file found in ../share/config/ but still, the new kmail asks for the password. Now, where would kmail actually store that password ? Certainly in user space, isn't it ? kmail does not run with root privileges to store in /etc/.
